    Went up 2.5" on my 86 Blazer (Rancho). Dropped the transfer case 1" to stop the drivetrain vibration. Truck drives and stops strait with no sway or wander.

    Here is the problem...
    In the morning, it starts to pull to the left a little. Sometime after, the truck jerks hard to the left.
    This happens within the first 15min of driving and then goes away entirely. Happened 3 days now.

    I have a stock steering stabilizer and it happens on highway roads. Could something be binding?

    Appreciate any help

    Check out your inner bearings and ball joints. My truck would pull harshly to the right during heavy breaking. It turned out to be that my right inner bearings were totally destroyed.

    Mine pulled hard right and it had a seized caliper and bad ball joints. It would also pull both ways depending on which way I turned last...that turned out to be the steering stabilizer

    I'm not late im on Central Standard Time

    I would check the same things above. Calipers, bearing and ball joints can do this.
