Hey there...I've been data logging my 1/4 miles so MPT can iron out the wrinkles in my tune and, like the title says, my truck will pull to the left or right when flooring it. Driving normal and steering is fine. I recently had an alignment done and I'm all good there. My boss thought it might because my rear struts aren't stiff enough to keep my ass off the ground lifting the front up a bit creating the steering issue. Any suggestions? Would traction bars help?

Left and right during the same run or left one time then right on another run? Same stretch of road or different? Traction control of or on? In two or four wheel drive?

Yes, yes, off (advance trac, too), 4HI. There's no wheel spin being in 4HI, but I have to fight the wheel to keep the truck straight...

Try in 2 wheel with Elocker locked (if equipped) and see what happens

Mr B???

What do you know about WOT 0-60 Elocker starts? Lol

So, a little jekyll/Hyde comes to the surface.

I'm thinking then that there are multiple causes, front tires grabbing and slipping a little. Varying frictional coefficients of the road surface, tire tread flex, carcus flex, suspension loading and unloading the individual tires, control arm bushings compressing then springing back. One or all or several working additively. I would bet that driving normally will alleviate the problem.

Comments make no sense. Need video
So, I think what you are saying is that you don't think his truck is actually catching air? You know, popping a wheelie?

It would explain it though, no?
