    warped rotors... is it all the time when your accelerating or is it also when your coasting?

    Welcome to torque steer or you have alignment issues. It realy depends if that is the only time its happening or not. Warped rotors would cause a pull during braking

    oh ok it only happens under hard accel. during all gears it drives straight w normal driving.coasting it drives straight, warped rotors would cause that ?? i woulda nvr thought that ..

    Warped rotors shouldn't cause that. If anything, if they were being engaged it would pull all of the time.

    Common cause for hard pull is worn bushings and possibly tie rods/alignment. Torque steer should not be that significant unless you're putting down a lot of power(and have traction). Since you have a 90 Integra, definitely check the radial arm bushing located under the front radiator(the radial arms keep the control arms in place; if it were worn out it would allow the LCA to move back/forward during hard braking or hard acceleration).

    true...if its not pulling while braking you should start with an alignment and see if that will solve your problem

    Or just torque steer.. If it doesn't pull when your braking then your fine. But if it does then alignment. Warped rotors will just cause it to shake when you are braking, and won't stop as fast. So stop freaking out....

    warped rotors will only be noticed during braking. the steering wheel will vibrate

    the radial arm may be bent slightly at the lower control arm mounting location (or somewhere else). this is caused by hitting a curb or something like it with the front right wheel. measure the wheelbase from the center of the axle nuts (wheel center-to wheel center) on the right and left sides. the right side will probably be shorter than the left by about an inch. thats about how much youll get from the bushing and redial arm getting screwed up. maybe an inch and a half.

    if the sub frame is good you can race it. and if its not...race it anyway. you can replace the control arms, radial arm, etc. hell!! if youre up to it you can replace the front sub frame but you better get it square. also check all the bushings like someone else said. when i messed mine up it wasnt too bad. i took a hard left onto a street at like 90 mph. i hit the curb a little but it was pretty damn fun
