Tyre tread will affect it going in a straight line when you let go of the steering wheel, Get the calipers checked for sticky pistons too. Have you got any knocking or grinding noises as well?

Normally a severe pull under braking is down to a pad or calliper sticking have a look at your discs and see if one is burnt red

discs look alright, ill strip the calipers and bleed them, i have noticed the steering feels a bit loose on bumps and potholes etc which made me think tension rod but it was alright for a bit after i had the tracking done.

There is no squeaking or grinding not since i dealt with the squeaking from the bushes

Check your track rod ends and inner tie rods too.

They're the ones that come out either side of your steering rack mate. You'll need a ramp to check them.

Why would you bleed the brakes unless you have replaced pipes or burst a pipe

Again why would you be removing the callipers??? And no air will get in unless u have lost all brake fluid or replaced pipes.
All you will be doing is removing the wheels and using a flat screwdriver gently lever the pistons in and then see if the pads are free in the calliper as well,if the pistons take a lot of force to go backin then you will need to free them off by carefully lifting the rubber seals off just enough to spray something in there to help free them then press the brake a few times and lever the pistons back. It may take some time lol
