Aww! Gotcha. I follow.
Its gradually. I call it a drift not a pull.
If you can upload a video to youtube to see it in action that will help a lot .. but honestly I wouldn't worry too much about it unless your tires are wearing out or you just can't seem to control the truck or you don't feel safe ....

I think my OCD is just getting the best of me. It happens. lol
Ya, I am just going to focus on the steering wheel getting fixed tomorrow. I asked before the alignment if they will reset it after their done and he said yes. I asked if they had the scan tool. He said yes. So, maybe the tech (not person I asked) forgot.
Yeah, they forget or don't do it at all ... I was being told that they reset it on mine when I first got mine aligned and the wheel was tilted left ... I finally asked if I can be there when they reset it at allen tires and they allowed me to watch and the dude was on top of everything ... did the specs I gave him and reset the sensor ... bam! I got in my truck and the damn wheel was centered and the truck was aligned to my liking ....

Ya, well find out if they lied or forgot tomorrow. lol
You'd think most big chains have the scanner by now.
Sadly you have to baby sit people now to make sure the job is done right.

Ok. Spent 4hrs there. No joke!
Steering wheel is straight.
Notice the specs, their off again and he is saying what the last 5 shops said "no room for adjustment"
Toe is fixed though at 0.05

I really suggest having the tech putting both camber bolts completely straight down at the 6 o clock position. This will be a good starting point to see how the camber differential rests. Then slightly and slowly twisting them to desired specs making sure neither are too far out of phase. Sometimes they get so focused on the spec they are ignoring on one side can counteract the other.

After 5 shops I am swapping out the Zone's today. Ill take it back and see if that fixes it. I went through all my old alignment sheets and their good until the Zone's went on. Ill report back.
