Pulls

the new truck when braking a little harder seems to pull to the left, any ideas on a cause or what to check? going to be taking some time off to have the alignment checked and the tires balanced as these seemed like they could be issues also, then a set of new shocks, any idea how long shocks should last? truck has 191k on it and has a set of procomps now. thanks guys.

Ok you sound like you are on the way down to try and solve your pulling problem. If the things you are going to do don't work. Inspect the brakes, they may need to be bled.

On your shocks, it is recommended that they be changed at 80,000 miles. So if the previous owner put the pro-gomps on at 80,000 then you are over due. Are the shocks leaking oil, that is usually a good sign that they are worn out and need replaced.
