This question is going to sound a little complicated but I'll try my best to describe my problem. When I'm driving and I'm about to change gears the my cars pulls to the left. Also when I'm driving on the highway and speed up to change lanes, when i'm switching lanes my car jerks to that side making me almost lose control of the car, this also happens when I'm making a turn or just when I speed up. Can anyone please help me I dont know whats wrong and I cant figure it out. I would relly appreciate the help.

It sounds like you have a bad rack and pinion. Or it could be on the off chance a bad strut on that side. Check your power steering fluid level and if the fluid has an ashen gray color it is probably the rack and pinion. The color means that alumnum from the rack and pinion has disolved inside of the steering and the rack and pinion needs to be changed. It is probably worse when it is cold.

If not "bounce" each side of the car and see if one side bounces more than the other. Let me know

I bounced the car and it seems that both sides bounce the same. Also I checked the power steering fluid and that also looks fine.
