After the repairs are done I am going to guess you had the alignment set at an alignment shop.

1st rotate front tires side to side and see if the problem changes sides.
2nd while the tires are off look for rotor discoulering from heat. Left one in particular.
3rd Tire pressures even? try 10 psi higher in left front tire ( Red Neck fix but it made grandma happy for over a decade )

Now we get into rare stuff.
Have a 4 wheel alignment done, make sure you get a print out that lists thrust angle, and rear axle alignment numbers.
The thrust angle may be the issue. Thrust angle manifests as dog tracking, a small amount will make a big diference at the steering wheel.

Good Luck
