Truck drifting to left

I have had my leveling kit on for almost two years. About four months ago it started drifting to the left. If I hold the steering wheel centered the truck drives straight. When I let go of the steering wheel the truck drifts to the left even on heavily crowned roads. I put the stock tires and wheels back on today and the truck handles the same. Alignment shop has aligned the truck to factory specs (recommended by Ready Lift). Any ideas?

Update for future searchers. Looks like the left wheel bearing is shot. No play when you check by moving the tire back and forth but I can move the u-joint inside the knuckle back and forth with no problem.

Ford says wheel bearing is fine and they agree that it pulls to the left but have no idea why.
