Could be several things, before condemming Ft end, check rear axle,
bent control arm, spring perch, frame mount all can affect steering.
Check R axle with taught string or laser beam, and square.
Assuming rear is OK, go to a " good " alignment shop, and get a
" thrust " alignment. Some alignment shops are awful, the one down the
street, failed to tighten control arm bolts enough to keep shims in place.
[ technician complained bolts are ' hard to get at ' ]
One common alignment blunder is turning tie rods more on one side, than the other, that gives one side more leverage than the other.
A good shop test drives before, and after alignment, price is also
a clue, cheap price = cheap workmanship A busy shop is busy for a reason, an idle shop is idle for a reason.
