Default Pulling to the right

My 07 Voyager 2.8 CRD has started pulling to the right when accelerating at around 50-60 mph. It feels like torque steer, but has never been apparent before. The steering wheel then appears to be slightly misaligned from the normal straight ahead position. Anyone got any ideas please?

A dragging front brake OR try cross rotating front tires and see if pull goes to the left or goes away...That would indicate a bad tire.

1) Check all tire pressures. Some time ago a discussion on this forum concluded the front needs 42lb and rear 35lb.
2) A sudden pull to one side is often indicative of a front wheel been driven into the kerb resulting in bent parts.
3) Check any tire tread "lifting" or "feathering". This may help with identifying bent parts. The offset steering wheel suggests damage of this kind.
Cheers, Leedsman.

Thanks for the replies. I have had a full wheel alignment done and it has cured the problem.
