pulling to the right...

ok so i just put new ball joints ball joint brackets and new aal on my truck. took it down and got it aligned and its pulling to the right. is the alignment off? the steering wheel is straight and the tires look straight. any idea what it could be? the brackets are custom made by me and are super close if not exactly the same on both sides. im thinking maybe the axle shifted? maybe the leafs have differemt lengths? im stumped and it bugs the shit out of me

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Sounds like the alignment is off.

If you've got a low tire, the vehicle will pull to that side. Front is more noticeable. You could try to go back to the shop and say hey this thing is pulling to the right, fix it. The shop should have done the tire pressures. They shouldn't have let it go if it was pulling.

thats what im thinking why did they say its ready if the guy test drove it and everything but it pulled to the right and at any speed and is bad enough to where you have to hold it slightly to the left for it to drive straight

i bolded and italicized the wheel shakes because if it does that than your tires need to be balanced, this is typical. which explains the pull to the right..

yes and no as you raise the truck farther off the groung the more "feel" you will have therefore your truck center of gravity will be higher. your tires will move with the road more....

Check the rear u bolts for tightness, but I'd guess it needs balanced or realigned
