Default Questions about alignment

Hey everyone, I have a questions about my 2012. I recently installed a Rough country leveling kit. Than I just had 35x12.50x22 in wheel and tires installed. Before the alignment was done the the steering wheel was only slightly turned to the right. and the truck didnt really pull too hard at all. Now after getting the alignment, the steering wheel is still turned to the right but a little less now. Only now the truck pulls more to the right, and dives into right hand turns, but I have to put more effort to go left. Not a ton but it doesnt dive like it does going to the right. I looked at the alignment numbers and they are almost right on factory settings. maybe a degree off on one or two angles. But almost right on.

Anybody got any ideas on how I can have this adjusted or why this is occurring.

Thanks Joe

I have the same issue but to the left. Ive had my tires re balanced twice and also had the alignment done by two different shops. Still comes back the same. Mine isn't bad under 55mph if I hit 70mph on the freeway it gets really bad. It'll actually take left hand turns by itself.

I have TGC spacer in the front and rear

I suspect an incorrectly done alignment. I presume they didn't give you a before and after spec sheet. It sounds to me like you have a cross caster problem (either too much in the left or not enough in the right) but it could also be a camber related problem or even a little of both.

Double check your air pressure in your tires too!
