2003 CRV AWD Pulls to Right on Acceleration

After replacing damaged axle shafts (front and rear driver's side), I've noticed that when I accelerate the car pulls to the right. Cruising on a flat highway, it holds straight with no input from me. As soon as I accelerate or add power to go up a hill, it pulls right. Is this from bad axle parts on the passenger side? It feels like the left front tire is doing most of the work. Thanks

Did you take any mounts loose to do the repairs? I doubt it's a axle shaft causing the pull. "Torque steer" is usually caused by worn or mispositioned mounts/worn suspension components. Some vehicles (years ago) had horrible torque steer right out of the box, having on long and one short axle shaft.

You stated that it feels like the left side is doing all the work. Are you sure both axles were correct and are fully seated in the transmission?

The work was done by a local shop, so I can't address the correctness of the installation. I did replace the struts about a year ago, but the torque steer problem is recent.

i'd have a through inspection done on the front end, to include engine and trans mounts.
