Some models could have a severe drift or pull to one side when the brakes were applied. If this is not caused by a dragging brake caliper, there is a service bulletin describing the step-by-step diagnosis and many possible solutions.

Dodge Ram 1500 QuestionsI am leaking oil out of the part where the drive shaft connects to the rear end. (2 answers)
