Once in a while upon stepping on brake, theres a bit of pull on my steering wheel ( left and right) Is it control arm bushing issue?

If the FCABS are gone, the wheel will jerk quickly when you tap on the brakes. I don't believe they will cause constant pull to one side or the other though. Which are you experiencing?

K... that didn't really answer my question but I'll try anyhow: If your steering wheel jerks quickly from left to right when you tap your brakes at a medium-low speed, your FCABS (Front Control Arm Bushings) are likely gone.

I thought cabs before I'd read more than your thread title.

If you search around here, you'll find many of the ways to verify them as being bad. You can also look. If they're stock, you'll notice that perhaps they're leaking their oil filled center, or perhaps so bad looking, you'll just know they're gone.
