They pull right with the caster in spec!  My 95 90Q finally drove straight
with the caster way out of spec... caster can be adjusted by shoving the
subframe around and/or rotating the ball joint according to the TSB.

My final theory was that the rear was drifting left... rather than the
front going right.  Once the car went straight, it still felt strange...
kind of like it was fighting itself.
