alignment problem ??

hey guys i just got back from the trail.. i have a 2000 s10 2wd its about 4 months old... any how, now when i brake the truck is pulling to the left side (drivers side) is this because the alignment has been thrown off by going off road.. or should i take it in to have the brakes checked under warranty.. ?

Re: alignment problem ??

I have heard of IFS trucks having to get alignments alot of times after going off-road, I have yet to have this happen to me, but first check your brakes, one of them could not be releasing right away and causing the pulling.

Re: alignment problem ??

If you're aligment is off after off-roading you will have problems in all driving. Either vibration or pulling or both. When you brake it should only magnify the problem.

If you go hard off-road then yes, get an alignment. Also check to make sure that, after driving around a little bit, that the rotors and wheels and hubs aren't hot; if they are then something is binding on you.
