Bleed your brakes mate.

Could be an issue with air in one of the caliper pistons making one side brake less, and so the car pulls to the opposite side.

So if its pulling left, bleed the right. But really you should bleed the lot, and start the work from the furthest brake from the brake cylinder.

change the wishbones kris and pads, maybe discs if worn. make sure you use corppergrease on the back of the pads.

when you put your foot down does the car steer to the right and when you lett off the gas does it go to the left? if so it's the wishbones.

coppergrease is a high temp grease so when you put some on the back of the pads and a bit on the groove of the disc carrier it will allow them to move freely and stop them binding as much,

I belive places like Kwikfit will do a free brake check - have a look at the balance between left and right to see if there is a problem with the brakes.
