Strut/ball joint or something else??
 
I've replaced both hub assembly on my 02 SL2 5 speed! I also replaced tie rod ends! But my car is pulling to the driver side bad, it's a workout to drive even 40miles holding it to the right! But also when I go into a left hand turn it feels like it's jumping/jerking to the right! Someone said that my passenger front strut was bad! Would that cause this issue? If not what is going Wrong?? Plz help me figure this out! Don't want to spend a bunch of money an that not be the problem!

Sounds like it needs an alignment. You will have to do that after replacing tie rod ends.

I did the string around the tires an everything looked good! I counted the threads (15 ¼) an put the tie rods back on at the same thread count! I agree it needs an alignment though! I just wasn't sure if it being out of alignment would cause it to jerk back to the right when I'm in a left hand turn! It feels like a shifting actually! An worries me cause it's like it's going to send me sideways! Someone shook the passenger side tire an said it's a strut bad! At first he thought it was the balloons on that side cause the tie was towed out at the bottom!

Setting it correctly within spec means getting both tie rods set to the correct “flat” on the hexagon.
