I recently purchased a 20004x4 SB and I've noticed that the truck turns more to the right than to the left. When turned right to full potential the right tire slightly rubs on the leaf springs and when turning left its like driving a long bed and not very sharp turning...... Any suggestions on what to do or what can be causing this problem??

I suspect a hack did some front end work, got a bad alignment and then recentered the steering wheel to compensate. You need to count the steering wheel rotations lock to lock and divide by 2. Set the wheel in the center of that, no matter what position it's at. For example, if it's 5 turns lock to lock put it where there's 2 1/2 turns to lock to the left and to the right. Pull your wheel and center it. Then, go get your toe adjusted so you're going straight with the wheel centered.

Edit - you might want to pull the wheel that's hitting the spring so you are getting a true lock to lock and not a lock to tire interference count.
