If the axle is more forward or backward from the other side it won't cause a pull in most cases. It will make it "dog track" (front axle will be shifted left or right of the rear axle)and the steering wheel will be off but no pull. Rear brakes can also cause the pull. Have those been checked for heat/rolling resistance like the fronts were(drum brakes to tight/lining came loose, caliper seized, pads frozen in bracket, brake hose like was mentioned before)? Also sometimes swaping the front tires side to side(put the left on the right and the right on the left). Sometimes it will eliminate or make it pull the other way.

Really? That's interesting about the axle part thanks for clarification.

The more I drive the better it's gotten ...or I'm just getting used to it. I have a hp 30 going in soon so I'm not planning on wasting any time working on this until after that. As far as I can tell the brakes aren't the culprits but I wouldn't put money on that just yet
