    So I just had king pins replaced and engine mounts only on one side cheap ### boss a new tie rod because it was bent supposedly and new tires balanced put on.... So its always pulled to the right a little but it just started that when im making sharp turn especially a fast u turn the tires wanna like skip on me and at high rpms it kinda sounds like a roaring sound coming from the truck but if i turn the wheel ever so slightly just a hair to the left it goes away but as soon as i release the wheel its back any idea?

    Replaced Tie rod? Needs alignment. A small amount out of adjustment means a lot. I did my cars recently. Turning corners it skids and hops. I need an alignment!! I thought I measured and replaced them exactly. It steers terribly. Get an alignment, have them check the rest of the front end.
