Pulls to the right...

My truck is pulling to the right and it has for a while. It might be the tires, but im pretty sure its not the alignment. Also I have a squeaking comming from the right side over bumps. Bearings are new, and tie-rods are fine im pretty sure. Anyone have any suggestions?

Well, Im pretty sure the squeaks are common, and on alot of rangers. I know mine does it. Are the tire psi's exactly the same? I know that can make a difference.

I got my alignment done a couple days ago and it removed the squeak and the little pull to the right i had. They had to replace some part on the right side, forgot but it worked. Go get an alignment and i can bet itll fix it

the right wheel is aligned i just replaced my left inner tie rod, and when start to come to a stop it pulls to the left but when im just cruising it pulls to the right. but ill align it again just for sh!tz and giggles and the air pressure did help a lil bit, it doesnt pull as bad but still does it none the less.

your upper control arm and lower a arm has bushings in it. also just rembered a bad ball joint will cause pulling and squeeking too
