As per the above IF the steering wheel is pretty much level when driving straight then the front end won't cause the problem due to alignment. If you turned like 11 or 1 o'clock going straight then you need to fix that first.
As for what is causing the problem well it depends
- an codes generated
- bad sensors on front wheels or some thing related
Without the proper tools and diagnostic all you can do is pull each wheel off and look for broken wiring, damaged or worn linkages. Worn out brake pads etc. I doubt anything at the back end would cause this. But something is triggering the ESP, hence the computer thinks you're in a skid, therefore if you not in one you need to think like it is and figure out what is causing this. What I 've mentioned above is a start. Otherwise you'd have to take it to a competent shop and brake specialist would be a start where they can test the ABS and wheel sensors are working. Snow, Ice etc from deep driving messes them up temporarily though once it melts back to normal.
