if you got your car aligned, great.

did you get your wheels balanced?

i doub thte problem is with your steering wheel. actually i know its not your steering wheel because you said your 'car pulls to the left' which means its an alignment and/or balancing problem thumbsup

you need your wheels balanced and rotate them.

well, if everything was done to spec then you obviously fugged something up in the accident. anytime a car's in a big enough accident it causes durability and function to lessen even if the car's repaired.

That happened to me. The front passenger wheel actually got bent on my accident.(Just slightly) Balancing will not help it. You need to get a new wheel. My steering wheel shakes at speeds over 65 MPH. Sux.

i rotated my tires (but didn't get them balanced) and now my steering wheel shakes at 75+ mph. oh well, it's getting better though...next time i'll get them balanced.

costco balances wheels for cheap. i had new tires (bought online) installed and balanced for $40 bucks. would've been less if i bought from them.

it might not be the wheels or the alignment at all, it could be that there is a piston that isnt releasing in the caliper. If the car pulls MORE after coming to a stop than after crusing for awile,99% of the time you have a pad sticking. Its not always going to be real noticeable but look into it thumbsup
