Question Steering Pull On S/d 250 Psd 4x4

I have a 2001 250 S/D PSD 4X4, I have noticed that it pulls to the right. Enough to where I have to hold the steering wheel in a cocked position. The steering wheel is cocked about 5 degrees to the left when wheels are centered. So I took the truck to get a 4 wheel almnt. and was told that acording to the computer that the truck should be pulling to the left and not the right. I was told that I have damage somewhere else and need to find it.

Any ideas?????

I think you need to take your truck to a different shop. They should be able to tell you what's wrong with it without you having to figure it out for yourself. I don't know where Waler is, but there is a shop in S.A. called Southwest Brake and Alignment that we take all of our trucks to (they have the equipment for seriously oversized trucks too). Most of the places like PBoys, Seers, Freestone, Breakchuck, Modus, etc... are not that well versed with the technical stuff. Just my opinion though.
