Slight pull to the right???

So I had the alignment done and the pull has gotten much better but its still there, they had suggested camber/caster kit but everything is in spec.
Any ideas?

What tires, steering stabilizer, and cross caster are you running?

You're probably not going to get rid of that pull unless you get new tires. I had a pull to the right when I had Dick Cepecs and when I got a new set of BF Goodrich the pull disappeared. It could be a variety of different things though.

Stock 20" wheels and general ht/s tires that are new, completely stock suspenders and steering.

Most trucks will get that pull. You're best bet is to have a suspension expert look at it. New tires fixed my pull so IDK about yours.

Why would most trucks get that pull?
I had an alignment done at a shop that does mostly big and lifted trucks and they recommended a camber caster kit.

I guess the suspension wears out and the crown in the road has a lot to do with it. All my trucks have had it in their life. Just gotta get used to tilting the steering wheel a little to the left!

I don't know anything about that specific tire but I am going to guess that it is a side effect of the tire design. Many tires on the market will have a right pull while a small amount have a left pull. If the pull is mild it can be adjusted for by running more caster on one side of the truck (cross caster). The amount of cross caster that can be put in a solid axle vehicle is minimal so it may not be enough to correct for those tires.

Another way to counteract for the right pull is to use a high pressure stabilizer that "pushes" to the left. Carli makes a unit like this for the 2008+ trucks that does very well. They hope to have a version out for the 05-07 trucks in the future but it will be quite a while due to all of the other development work they have right now.
