By Chance anyone have the older model Ranger or BT 50 in here. Reason I am asking is, I find my front tires tend to wear on the both outsides really quick. these are on the stock rims. I rotate them but if they stay too long in the front it keeps getting the same way. Also what is a good alignment place for these Vans. I went MM and they aligned it properly the first time, after that they never aligned properly. The van itself tends to feel like its pulling to left when i reach around 80, especially if during the day I can feel like if its ready to push off the road.

Tyre Pressures: 32psi Cold Front(reaches 35psi Hot) 30psi Cold Rear(No load)(reaches 33psi Hot)

Current Tires : Firestone Destination AT( the both rear tires got 66xxxKm and still has about 40% Life) (the front tires just not making it past 20xxxKm without wearing)

Also looking to change a set soon, can anyone recommend another good brand AT to choose from and where to purchase? Thanks

How hard do you corner
Has the suspension been checked.

Not sure how true but I heard that vehicles are designed to slowly steer away from oncoming traffic (so a right hand drive car should slowly steer to the left) in the event that if the driver falls asleep and their hands come off the steering wheel there is less chance of a collision with traffic from the oncoming lane.

Hope you get it sorted

The most I corner is about 65. Suspension checked and replaced everything in front down to cradle bushings. But the pull is still there and makes the vehicle unstable in my opinion. Only option I seeing is the alignment always going off and I need to find a good place to sort it out. Any suggestions other than MM?

Thats is a common problem
There is an adjustment to me made to the steering box itself during alignment.
Its a lengtht procedure as the battery and battery stand need to be removed.
I had it fixed in my ranger and it worked fine after.

Sounding like there is a solution after all, what adjustment was made to the steering box and who does it? Only adjustment I made already is adjusting the box, this is back off the lock nut and turn clockwise with a flat head, when the steering gets too much play.

Not sure exactly
I had left my van at the alignment shop as the wait was too long. He said they will need to remove the battery and battery stand to tighten something in the box.
I never bothered to follow up as the van was sold shortly after and it worked well up to that point.

Have you checked the idler (pitman) arm...

I still want to believe that this is an alignment issue but you said that the front end is sorted; bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, proper tyre pressure, etc

Short of doing plenty turns on your commute I can't think of much else really

pitman and idler arms were replaced same time. Will check the alignment again somewhere else and see where it goes.
