So without braking it pulls to the left? Just when you go faster? Bad rotors Idk if they can do that. But while braking they sure can.

If its shaking without braking it can be a off balanced rim, a rim could have a dent in it.

If its pulling without brakeing its most likely the alignment. An if you plan on keeping the car for awhile an you like to race, are changing out suspension pieces coming up, ect. Go to Firestone get a life time alignment. After the first two your third will be like its free. You won't have to pay for the second one mathematical it would be like you would. I did this on my crx an civic. Anytime you want you could go get it done. So the car always feels nice,doesn't waste tires, an better grip. Really its totally free after you pay that one time. Also if the car doesn't pull right or left it doesn't mean its your alignment isnt off. Always look at tire wear an you will know. If you know what your looking for.

It could possibly be a stuck caliper....which can cause the pads to stay closed on whatever side is bad. This can then make it feel like car is pulling etc. There are a few factors as well, such as bad wheel bearings too.
The best way to figure out the problem is to take front wheels off and take the brake system apart....bit don't go over board like taking full calipers off or entire suspension off ....LOL. Check the guide pins that go into the caliper bracket or piston on caliper. There are a few other tests you can check as well that I can PM you about.
