    Okay....I usually don't bitch about this...but I can barely understand WTF you are trying to say. Punctuation and proper word usage aren't just for academic types.

    You DID or ARE GOING TO check the alignment?? Have you checked to make sure the rim is in round??

    Sorry I'm having an extremely hard time trying to understand what you're saying too...

    So, if I have this correct... you were driving and part or all of your truck fell into a large hole. What exactly fell, where was the impact, and on what side and tires? Did you slam down on the frame, how fast were you going? More information on this would help diagnose the issue.

    You said you already had the alignment checked... correct?

    You said something broke, but I can't make out what. You also stated it was replaced.. I believe you're talking about the wheel hubs? If so, did you change the entire axle assembly?

    You also state it's pulling hard to the left when you brake (thus leading me to believe you did the damage on the driver's side front?) If you're going straight, and then break... it's pulling to the left. That would probably mean either the driver's left front or back brake is clamping harder than the pass side, or the front left wheel is actually shifting to the left. If it is shifting, you either have a bushing torn out, bent up control arm, ect. I know you said you checked it out, but you probably need to revisit this.

    yeah... sorry about it again,, but yes i was driving my truck fast on a trial and i fell in a hole... on the two front wheels was the impact we fixed the power steering bar because it was drawn .. dont need to change the entire axle assembly because it runs normaly and i already change the steering bushings and lower arms bushings too im installed a complete energy suspension bushing kit, front coilovers new, and rear shocks... and still go from my left side .... the brakes are perfectly.. the rear brakes and the front discs too...

    So if you put a full energy suspension kit (poly urethane I presume, it's good stuff I got a kit in the garage I need to install for my Z). Did you get the alignment re-verified after all bushing changes?

    Also I was thinking some more... is the wear on your tires even? Did you rotate them to see if it shifts pulling at all?

    What are "the hubs of suspension?" Pictures would really help us here in diagnosing your problem. Did you "fall into a hole," or did you drive your truck into a hole?

    Similar issue here: I was an idiot last night and decided to mud in an open field near my house. Little did I know how soft the mud was. I plowed up this hill and got stuck in a deep hole, axle burried to the dirt with my right front and rear wheels in the air. Put it in 4low, locked and still could not get out. Got whenched out after nearly two hours.

    Now my steering wheel is tilted more so to the left than normal. Still drives straight, however major vibrations at speeds above 50+. Will be going to the alignment shop tomorrow morning. I think I bent a tie rod or something else because my front wheel looks a little turned. Not sure how the heck I was able to bend or screw up my alignment, by just getting pulled out of soft mud. Sucks either way...

    ended up being my alignment. had it fixed back into specs and now running straight. another lesson learned, if your going to off road, you have got to be prepared for anything and do it responsible with others.:)
