I would suggest you go and get an alignment to see where you are sitting now that you have installed those drop brackets. If your axle is sitting to the right, you should invest in an adjustable track bar. I am sure you know that you should torque everything properly once the vehicle is sitting on the ground under its own weight. Good luck with the investigation. Check your wheel lugs as well if you haven't already.

x2 and when you get it back make sure they didn't fill your tires up to full max.

I have 33"s The tread wright mud tires.

Well that's what I was suggesting before that I think is the issue.

They will probably fix your problem or at least tell you what you need to do to fix your problem. They usually have free coffee to so thats nice.

Unfortunately I'm not really a coffee drinker

Ill just save up to get the adjustable track bars and then go from there. I mean the tires are even on the road it looks like for now. Ill be doing another chalk test this weekend since theirs finally no snow, its dry out and it will be decently nice this weekend!

When you say sitting to the right, do you mean driver side or passenger? if it is sitting to the passenger side, you may have a bigger problem. Also, if you are on 12.50s, expect some slight pulling to the right, most roads have a slight grade, and wide mud tires will follow the road.

If you change your track bar I would also change the hardware to 9/16 grade 8.
