    I just had an alignment done at Sears auto center a couple weeks ago because of steering issue I been having since purchasing this truck 3 months ago. The Sears shop told me the alignment checked out OK but I didn't notice any changes in the steering. Can some one help me interpet the alignment results to see if they are within factory specs? As far as I know the truck is completely stock and there were no lift modifications done.

    Oh, I almost forgot. The problem is a slight diff to the right of the road when going straight. I already rotated and balanced wheels and tires. also purchased four new sets of tires as well.


    Here's the results:

        Front Left    Front Right
          
    Camber    0.1    0.0
    Caster    3    2.9
    Toe    0.08    0.11
    SAI    13.8    16.7
    Included Angle 13.7    16.8
    Turning Angle Diff (data not Avialable)         
       
    Front   
    Cross Camber    0   
    Cross Caster    0.1   
    Total Toe    0.19   
          
        Rear Left Rear Right
    Camber    0.1    -0.6
    Toe    0.06    0.12
          
        Rear   
    Total Toe    0.18   
    Thrust Angle   -0.03

    Have you checked if you don't have a brake caliper that is hanging up and causing the truck to pull?
