    I have an 89. The truck drifts to the right. All new tie rods, drag link shocks, springs (2" skyjacker springs, front and rear).
    New tires, even rotated. New ball joints.
    What would cause it to drift. Does not matter what the road is like. Always goes to the right.
    Also have a light vibration under acceleraton. I have a NEW driveshaft. The rear is anlged.
    Any help???????????

    tire wear, tire inflation, you might of hit somthing really hard with your front right tire while you were drunk and cant remember, j\k. but check your tire pressure. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    when you installed the ball joints and or the tie rods did you get an alignment? You should have your toe could be out of specification or your caster-camber could be off. something bent, axle spindle etc. Look for the obvious, dragging brake one wheel bearing tighter than the other etc. Good luck.
