    So I hit a pretty big lip when I was snow wheeling. It felt like I hit a curb only on the right side and now my truck is pulling pretty hard to the right. It compressed my suspension pretty much to the maximum and felt pretty bad. Think I just need an alignment or could I have messed something up?

    Well it's dark so can't see to much. I work early so it will still be dark. Trying to not worry all day at work. So what should I be looking for and I will try with a flashlight.

    To the untrained eye, they will see nothing wrong. Get an alignment. I've done hundreds. You need one. Possibly parts too.

    Yup 99 bucks after tax. I got hooked up man. I had prepared myself to pay 169 like i did several tears ago. I went to the first express n it was packed so i left. I drove about five minutes to the other express down the road and it was on sale there lol! That was a big win.

    I think 140 is the norm. You can get it cheaper by calling a few places.

    I typically pay 50 for 1 alignment.

    Get out and inspect your tie rod to see if it looks bent. Look at the knuckle to make sure it looks like the opposite side. Look at the alignment cam tabs front and rears at the LCA.

    Here are some tabs getting gusseted and the factory ones getting cut out.

    Look and see if in general everything (UCA down to the LCA) looks like the opposite side and looks "normal". Look for cracks in the welds.

    Look at the bushings on the steering rack while you have someone turn the wheel. You don't want excessive play, if it looks like they're shot, probably need to have replaced.

    You may have just knocked it out of adjustment but check for damage.
