Steering pulling to the left?????

Looking to solve a steering problem…My truck is a 02 with 200+ miles the steering is pulling to the left just enough that if you were following me you would think I was a DUI. I can count 1-mississippi 2-3-4 then it will pull to the left. I know this may sound stupid but I have tried everything to find this issue checked fluids-ok checked for leaks-no leaks it seems to go away after its warm of I try and jerk the wheel hard to the right. Any ideas?..... FOUND the problem's left front u-joint frozen and also lockout hub damaged. R&R with new parts all is good.

Tire pressure too low, brake caliper on that side dragging, alignment issue, spindle bearings going out, excessive tire wear on that side. The list goes on. A hydraulic issue in the power steering system won't make it pull to one side, the steering and brakes just wouldn't feel right (or possibly work right).

steering pulling

Thanks for the reply I should have put more info I have new tires (3 months old) also I have rotated them and still the same issue. I have jacked up the front and tried to check the rotation and for any other signs of drag but no luck I have a spare wheel bearing with new hardware I will try this weekend and swap them out.
