Does it pull to the left all the time or when accelerating. One of the drive shafts are shorter on the corsa gearbox so it tends to pull harder on one side.

mine does that sometimes, depends on the road, but sounds like it could be a suspension bush to me, mine need changing, gmax springs on standard shocks...and they've been given a hard life...lol

Hey Warped.. Funny you should mention this, ive got the EXACT same problem mate. i just got back from a garage today, they checked my Tracking, Camber Angle and Toe. and none of them was out enough to make a difference.
If people think its the brushes then maybe i shoiuld buy a set of them, they're only 10/20 if i can remember rightly?

If you find out before me mate what it is then let me know, and i'll do the same.

does it pull to the left or just floats to the left? if it pulls then id say mechanical fault but if it floats (like mine) id say its just the road camber

Most roads are constructed in such a way that the tarmac is "bowed". ie: it slopes downwards to either kurb, for water run off purposes.

Most of u r prob running larger wheels than OE spec. The wider they are, the more the car wants to pull to one side.

Put a set of steelies back on, and thats ur prob gone.

I spent god knows how much having all my stuff checked (i.e camber, toe, tracking etc) dont you think the tyre pressure was the first thing i checked?

If its only pulling slightly, its most definately road camber, nothing you can do im afraid apart from getting a JCB and digging up the offending road and re-laying it with a neutral camber.
