My van shimies left and right badly....and it pulls to the left....it does it more when going straight and not so much when going around curves


check the vans rear shock absorbers if they are faulty the car can exhibit this type of behaviour and braking will be less efficient. Also tyre wear will be affected to.
I am not a shock absorber expert but had recently my four shock absorbers replaced as the fluid had ruptured in the front shockers and the rear mounts for the rear shockers were corroded and unsafe. (shock absorber expert at repair place mentioned the symptoms you are describing as a rear shock problem or the rear leaf springs are faulty)

    This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

    If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

    REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.
    1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
    2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
    3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
    4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
    5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
    6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
    7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
    8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
    9. Move shock assembly downward and tilt top of shock outward, then remove shock assembly from vehicle through top of wheel opening.
