hi all. long time no post. anyway...at speed if i have to stop suddenly my truck pulls to the left. in a previous post i read that the ball joints could be bad. but i had them replaced. could i have a stuck caliper or piston? also i'm getting a vibration 60-70 mph on left front. on good road it seems fine, no vibration. but on slightly bumpy highway, it starts to do the shake. i've had the right upper & lower, left upper & lower ball joints replaced,left/right strut rod bushings replaced, right front/left front drive axle u-joints replaced. i had the guys at goodyear (where i had the maintenance performed) balance all tires twice. it still does the same thing. they told me the front end is solid as a rock. they said it's possible my rims could be slightly bent. i have a 94 xlt, 64,000 miles on the original rubber. i'm planning on buying new tires so can anyone help me here too? i have p26575r15. can i put 31x10.5-15 on? i was thinking of going with goodyear mt/r or goodrich at ko. i live in the burbs of chicago and only drive 15 miles to work. but my goodyear wrangler rt/s are starting to suck in the snow. i don't off road but i'm looking for a good snow/ all round tire. my buddy reccommended the goodrich ko's. does anyone think that the vibration could be the tires? i was thinking of putting new wheel bearings in to see if that is the prob. thanks to all in advance!

Re: Pulling to the Left

Goodyear makes the worst tires on the road, and they're the most expensive. Get Michelin LTX AT, or the Goodrich's. You'll like the look & performance of 31x10.50's. Next time you get in your truck, hold the "RESET" button on the speedometer before turning the key to the RUN position (the needle willl sweep & the display will show "E 08 6"), then release it & press it again - the display will show 3 numbers followed by "CAL". If it's not "908CAL", go here. Then turn the key off, & start it normally.

The pull & shake sound more like brakes than anything else - check the rears carefully. But 64Kmi is a lot on the tires, so it could be them.
