Truck pulls to the right.... Any Ideas(not alignment)?
Ok, here goes...
I have new tires on the truck, had it aligned, no issues, put about 500 miles on it. The other day, Im on the highway, and notice myself 11 oclocking the wheel to keep the truck straight. If I let go of the wheel, truck goes to the right.
Take it back to the tire shop, they rotate and rebalance wheels, redo the alignment, truck still pulls, and they aren't quite sure what it is other than "not alignment" Im pretty confident the alignment is ok.
Some theories we came up with to check, and looking for thoughts here:
1. Brakes draggin on right side
2. Maybe the 4wd hub or some sort of front axle drag
3. Maybe something rear axle drag
Although I haven't measures the actual temp, I don't see any heat difference on the two sides of the truck by rough touch, which I would think I would if its brake drag. Truck doen't pull to either side when stopping.
Shop also said maybe a radius arm bushing is shot and front axle is shifted.
Just looking for other ideas as to what to look at.
