Problem Description and Possible Solution
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. Our technicians note the most common solutions are performing a four wheel alignment, checking torque on suspension components, installing shims between the wheels and hubs, and replacing the suspension arms.

just purchased a 1998 dodge ram 1500 sport with 165,000 miles on it. when applying the brakes, the truck pulls hard to the left. Just had new calipers and pads installed. tires are worn out in the front from irregular wear, and I noticed the back tires are worn outward, instead of normal treadwear on rear tires
Couldn't find the year of my vehicle....It's a New 2016 RAM 1500, 3.6 Ltr Express Reg Cab.
Drifted left ...had to tension right to stay straight.....it also pulled left on breaking. It was in the dealership right away. They had it for 2 days. I had it for one day and it still went left. took it right back. They have had it 3 days now trying to correct the problem. I had less than 100 miles when I complained ...took it in as soon as i could with 290 miles My next step will be my states Lemon law letter.
