Default Ram Pulling to the left???

Hi everyone, I've had my 2010 Ram Sport quad cab for about two months now. And from day 1, it had a slight pull to the left. On the highway after 3 hours of driving my left arm was sore from holding the truck in it's lane.

Anyway, I had my first oil change done last week, and had them do a wheel alignment, The mechanic said "it was a little off". Anyway on my way home from the dealer that day. it seems to me that nothing has changed. it still has a slight pull to the left.

Yesterday I was talking to a mechanic at work, His boss just bought a 2010 Ram SXT quad cab, And he was saying his truck pulls to the left too.

I was wondering if this is a problem with all of our trucks and it's as they'd say "Normal"???

My mechanic friend say's " to play with the tire pressure a little a pound or two, higher on the left and lower on the right. it may help a bit.

Some of the trucks are hard-core democrats. Mine is a centrist.

crowned roads will give that affect as well. Try playing with the tire pressure. Did you get a report on the before and after alignment on your truck in addition to the "it was a little off"?

Mine did the same from day one (way back when). Took it to dealer and they aligned it and it still kept doing it. Drove me nuts for years until I got new tires. It was a defect in the tires (Goodyear Wranglers). After getting new tires (Michelin), no more pulling, no more alignment problems. Try rotating them and see if it helps.

At the same time I had the alignment done I had my winter tires put on.
I thought it was the tires too. but these are a totally different set of tires.
Maybe not the best tires in the world.
I got the Hankook RW11's 275/60/20
I guess I'll just have to stay in the right lane where it pulls less.

I never saw any report. I didn't know they could make a report

try to swap the tires from left to right in the front. most likely you have a radial pull. tires aren't defective when they pull some tires just like to spin a certain way. i do alignments all the time and 90% of the time its a tire causing the pull. just cause you change tires and it still pulls dont rule out the tires still....... u might just be that lucky
