I currently own a 1997 Silverado ext cab fleet side. I've had my brakes serviced numerous times and it continues to pull to the left when I'm braking. Also it's very hesitant in picking up speed when passing even with major tune-ups at Chevy dealerships only to be serviced. I'm constantly purchasing front tires for my truck, with front end alignments being done often with the purchase of these tires.

There was an intermittent pull to the right. The pulling would become more severe when turning to the right. On one occasion the vehicle swerved violently to the right. The brakes were replaced but the problem still existed. The dealer was unable to find the problem. The consumer requested the dealer pay for repair. Scc

The problem with the "wander" is at any speed. The front end will suddendly pull to the right when ever I hit the most smallest of imperfection in the road.
