My truck is a 2001 2 wheel drive Dodge Dakota with 67,000 miles. I have now had three closely spaced wheel alignments which always yield the same answer: if I am on the right side of the road crown, the truck pulls to the right. If I am on the left side of the road crown the truck pulls to the left. This is not subtle, the steering wheel is over about 45 degrees with some real force in it. On a flat road the truck’s wheel is dead straight with no sensation of pulling. The truck did not behave like this when new (I thought it was one the nicest alignments I have known).
The truck has had new tires, new gas shocks, numerous tire rotations, careful tire pressure measurement and always EXACTLY the same result. The ball joints have been checked repeatedly by shops and myself. The steering gear appears to have no slop in it. The vehicle height is only about 0.1 inches lower than specification. There is no shimmy or vibration. The only thing that seems to make any difference at all is the level of the fuel tank, but that might just be my imagination.
The problem is driving me crazy.
