Exclamation Truck pulls to the left please help

Hi all. I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 4wd. It has been maticulously taken care of. I am having a problem with the truck pulling to the left. Here is what ive done has a 2.5" lift kit. new tires and wheels 305-75-16 has new brakes calipers and new hoses. rotors have been turned. Also has new rear brakes turned the drums new wheel cylinders and shoes. All tie rodws ball joints ansd steering is in good shape. I also put a new steering gear box that came from the dealer as the old one was sloppy. I have swapped the tires and has been aligned and alignment printout is perfect.

Whe is this truck pulling to the left now/ Any Ideas. Thanks

Check the trackbar...with a lift you sometimes need to go to a heavier duty one. Your stock trackbar may not be loose or worn out but it's not sufficient for a lifted truck. I found a good source for them if you are interested.

Swap the tires on the front from right to left and vice versa . See if it doesn't pull the other way now . Let me know .

If you have the print out , see if you can post it and I'll look at it . Vehicles will pull where there is the most (+)camber and least (-)caster . You don't want much more than a half of a degree variation between left and right wheel . Let me know . Tom
