Yeah, who said anything about a vibration? :?:
I was just throwing out a suggestion...geez.

Don't forget that the rear tires can cause a pull too. If swapping the front tires doesn't fix it, try swapping the rear tires front left to right.

Just curious, what kind of tires are they?

Volvo 70's have no castor adjustment and when the lower A-arm bushings begin to go out sometimes they will cause the car to pull.
