    It has always done this. Before the 2.5" lift, 33" tires, new wheel bearings, steering box, all new brakes including front calipers and hoses and rear slave cylinders, front end alignment, four wheel alignment including frame straightening, tie rod ends and new drag link. All this has been done in an attempt to correct the problem. I have driven on the wrong side of the road and it still pulls to the right. The only things I have not done are the steering knuckles and the front axle u-joints. Could either of these two items cause this?
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Also check tire pressure. Even a little uneven will show up.

    Also maybe somethinjg is wrong with your front end, like a few bad ball joints tha tare messing up the way it is tracking, or the swayabr bolted on only one one side...lots of things could cause it if you start thinking about it...

    Thanks for all the replies. The tires are wearing evenly, outside edges are also even. Tires are rotated routinely. PSI is checked and adjusted on a regular basis.

    I read in a previous post the axle u-joints could cause this? It's not full time, hubs are unlocked unless needed.
    Dreading going into the ball joints but might as well - done almost everything else! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
