    Have you tried cross rotating the front tires and seeing if the pull changes?

    The vehicle pulls to the left while driving or the steering wheel sets to the left (and the vehicle tracks straight)? If it's the latter, I believe there is a specific procedure to "reset/clock" the steering wheel

    Did they do a “4 wheel alignment”?

    Possible bent frame, bent control arm brackets, dragging brake or wheel on one side is now further back in the wheel well.

    It sounds like it needs to be put on a frame rack and checked.

    So in my experience with the tire business, a car/truck still pulls after the car has been alligned if the tires have uneven wear on them. Generally vehicles don’t pull because they are out of alignment, they pull because the Tires have been worn uneven because the car isn’t tracking straight.

    In your experience the truck may have been misaligned before the accident and the accident may have brought attention to it. Once they fixed the damage and aligned the truck, if the tires still have uneven wear, it can be your issue. Check the fronts to see if the have worn unevenly- if your rears have worn evenly try and rotate them. If they are close to end of their lifecycle, it may be worth a replacement.
