Check your front suspension control arms. Their rear/vertical bushings are designed to add toe-in during braking normally but if they're shot they can do it anytime. The Catera is also prone to "Tram-Lining" or following cracks in the pavement. A good alignment helps but if the bushings are shot it's a waste of money. While you're at it replace the tie rod ends.

Read my article on suspension upgrades for more info.
