Default what did I break?

Hey I have a quick question. My truck pulls to the right pretty bad and the steering wheel snaps to the right too far. I been getting used to it but last night I pulled off the road to rearrange my bed full of junk. It was raining and muddy I used 4x4 to get back on the road my front end went on the road first (right tire, then left) then the rear and I disabled 4x4. (I was turning right to get on the road)

Well now it REALLY PULLS! I almost have to fight the steering wheel to drive straight. Dose turning while in 4x4 bend something if your on asphalt? it was only a few feet but something's really wrong!

Default Re: what did I break?

uh, yeah dont use 4x4 when on pavement....... but it shouldnt break anything that would make the truck pull one way or the other.

get under your truck and look at the steering shit, if something doesnt look right, then you will be on your way to fixin the problem

if you cant notice anything, or dont know if something is right or wrong, get in your truck, and drive to a shop and get it looked at.

I would like to think your alignment is crap lol or could be the caliper not releasing. Mine pulls right really bad when i brake so i know its my left caliper.
