Steering issue...

Hey guys,
Ive got a new issue now with the jeep... ( whats new ) today I went out and flexed her out to get measurements for my new bumpstops. Everything went okay. then driving home I noticed the jeep is now pulling to the right. Not super hard, but hard enough to seem like an alignment issue. Anyone know where to start? I heard my trackbar mount bushing ( steel bushing ) making some squeaking after I flexed her out, but then I got home and greased her some and she stopped. But liek I said its pulling now to the right. Any idea?

p.s. I also noticed that my belt was squealing a bit too. Like never did it before, now its pulling and squealing. Could the belt be too tight since I adjusted it last week? ( havent driven ti since ) Could the squealing be the best is too loose?

btw, I just did a dirveway alignment and it was out abit but still didnt fix the issue. Its not as bad now, but it could also be in my head that its not as bad..

I think the problem started lastnight when I flexed it out. Could the camber or something else be off? I have long arms, and I checked the hemi joints and all looks good. The tires are TSL radials and are fairly new at 19/18-32'nds
