pulls to left when shifting

hey guys i noticed a couple of days ago when i shifted it wanted to pull to the left.i didnt think much of it at the time so i left it be.it seems to have gotten worse so im going to climb under it this weekend and see what it is.it seems to maily do it when its cold outside also.
i was wondering if yall have had this problem before and what i should look for.
i know the obvisous like bushings and etc.

its an 05 lj with 45,000 miles and the 6 speed with 4in lift.

two possible conditions that may cause this...

Right side rear control arms are longer when under no load conditions (bad bushings, adjustment)

Left side (front or rear) brakes are dragging slightly

Best Regards

I would check your rear trackbar and swaybar.

If you have adjustable control arms, the jam nut could be loose on one or more of them, or they could be incorrectly adjusted. If you don't have adjustables, I would look to see if everything is tight and look closely at the control arm bushings.

thanks for the help.
every thing under the rear seems good but i did notice that my front left motor mount is worn out already.
im thinking this would cause my problem.
am i correct?

Mine was doing the same thing. Found the sway bar link was bad. I replaced both of them and back to normal.
