Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup
My steering wheel is turned half way around to left but the second you let go it cuts hard to the right ive had bearings changed new tires front end alighned new steering linkage new brakes why does this cut so hard
Check the brake rotors up front for bluing or spalling, you may have had pads replaced, but if a caliper gets stuck so it cannot move in relation to the abutement it is bolted to, or a piston is not fully retracting, this can cause that as well,
Also take a look at the rear springs- the shackles, where the shackles mount to the frame and the spring leaves- you may have broken main leaf which if broke a certain way, could allow the rear axle to shift it's orientation to the rest of the vehicle. Also look to see if the frame is twisted- it is a boxed frame, but it is soft.
If you have power steering, put the front wheels up in the air and block the rear wheels so it does not fall off, then start the vehicle and see if the steering will allow you to steer from stop to stop with one finger. If it has a power steering valving issue, it will show up by spinning the wheel out of your control until it hits the stop.
If the alignment is truly that bad, or the vehicle has been in an accident, you will see odd wear patterns across the tires. Getting what is called a "thrust alignment" or "4 Wheel" alignment will make the vehicle drivable.

sounds to me like its a cv joint. if the rubber boot gets damaged in any way, dirt gets in there and really does some damage. check the boot really good. if you dont see any holes or anything it might just be the wheel bearing. id take it to a mechanic and ask him to just look at it. usually they wont charge ya.

Diagnosing the bearings can be tricky depending on severity of wear. Typically - drone noise at highway speeds, squeeling, clicking or grinding noises at low speeds that reduce during braking, or pull off the wheel and brake assembly and check the bearing for slack or smoothness of rotation by hand. While doing this, check the brake assembly thoroughly - generally a more likely culprit of wheel noise.
Wheel bearing replacement is not for the novice backyard mech. - you will need pullers, press, etc. If you can get a rebuilt assembly - much easier.

The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.
