Also check for bad bushings on the rear control arms. When these are bad, you get terrific torque steer.

Rear subframe has to be dropped down to get the control arms off, by the way.

You can check by jacking the rear end up off the ground and see if the wheel moves forward or backward under pressure. If so, the bushings are gone.

Worst case you have rotted out rear control arms, but this is usually only on the W126 chassis.
