What tire did you come from and what tire did you go to?

Many tires on the market will have a little left or right pull. In some cases you can compensate for this with some alignment work. In other cases you can run a higher pressure adjustable stabilizer like the Carli High Mount (on a '13+ 3500) to help correct right pulls. For 03-13 2500's a Low Mount can be used.

Mine does the same thing. Will get stabilizer, track bar and steering brace. Hopefully that should solve all issues.

Toyo MT's have a very noticeable right pull. A Carli High Mount (on radius arm trucks) will solve it and those others items will tighten up the steering feel even more.

Sounds like it is just a side effect of those tires. If it is a mild pull your alignment shop may be able to take care of it with a little cross caster. If not then a Carli High Mount stabilizer (on a '13+ 3500) would be your best bet.

what's the difference between a low mount and a high mount?

ON a '13+ 3500 and a '14+ 2500 a Low Mount replaces the stock stabilizer and "pushes" to the right. This would be good for correcting a tire that pulls left.

The High Mount works in addition to the stock stabilizer but "pushes" to the left to help correct for right pulls. They are also great for guys running 37's and bigger and/or pounding their trucks pretty hard off road.

Would a Thuren stabilizer do the same thing? Since I have his setup?

I'd either raise the caster on the left side or lower the caster on the right side.

Hard to tell with it not on the machine.

But if you paid for an alignment, I'd have them fix it, if they know how that is. Just because the can get anything in the green doesn't mean they know what they are doing.

I assume that the Thuren stab pushes right so it would make it worse just like a Carli Low Mount would. The Carli High Mount pushes left to counteract the right pull of the Toyo's.
