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.
