You may also want to have your tires road force balanced.

yes, that is what I initially thought was causing the problem, and I put new ones on. I also had all 4 wheels roadforced balanced and aligned before I started replacing the suspension components. At this point nothing has helped the situation.

+1 Just had this done to our Ion (notortious for pulling with new tires). A service that's worth every cent if it's available.

Unfortunately, he's already done that. I went back and read the entire thread and have run out of ideas for him.

Just wanted to give an update on this. I put the car up this weeked and rechecked everything. I found one of the new rotors I changed was binding, changed all out just to be safe. PROBLEM GONE! Looks like I got a defective rotor.
