You mentioned that most of the suspension is less than 3 years old, but does that include the control arm bushings? Do a visual inspection to see if the rubber is cracking severely or if rubber has peeled out of them.

If it rubs on the rear of the tire on the right side, and if the car pulls to the right, I would say the lower control arm on the right side is moved back for some reason. That would shorten the wheelbase on that side and reduce the positive caster on that side causing both the rubbing and the pull.
