    New 6'' lift with 4'' steering arm and 2' drag link.Major pull to the right and truck tracks to the right.At a dead stop , if i touch the brake pedal the steering wheel will move.Is this alignment or what??Tried to get aligned today but my sway bar wasn't seated all the way.Will try again tomorrow.

    Sounds like a caliper is sticking. Jack up the front end and apply the brakes and then rotate each wheel by hand. They should rotate relatively easily. That's where I'd start.

    Check the u bolts. Mine pulled to the right because the u bolts weren't tight. Hope this helps.
