Pull to side under hard accel/decel


2003S. Lately I've noticed that it wants to pull pretty hard to the left under WOT accel, most notable in 2nd or 3rd gear. If I do a total lift (no brake) it will jink to the right.

It feels like torque steer in n FWD car on accel. I had a soft rear tire and thought that was it, but it's still doing it after repair of the tire and recheck of all tire pressures.

It's bad enough that I wouldn't want to track the car as it it.

Any thoughts? No clunks or other noises.

Something maybe loose or broken in the suspension. The only time I had a car do that, it had a crack in the front suspension crossmember. It sounds like yours might be in the rear suspension.
