No, but I'm in for the same thing shortly, as my 300D has a bad link on the right side -- pulls to the right under hard acceleration.

I've been told these links are a real pain in the sitting part, and I believe it.

You may need to get a PortaPower and move the suspension around until the bolts go in properly. I've been told they will torque the bushings improperly if they don't slide in straight.

Check the spring link with the other ones and see if it has been damaged -- sounds to me like it may be bent.
