Exclamation Pulling to the left! Help!

Hey guys, the miles are getting pretty high on my TJ, so to take some of the pressure off, I decided to buy a second vehicle. Of course it had to be a Jeep, but I went with a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport XJ. It's lifted 3" and has 33s, but I'm having some trouble that I need help with. It pulls pretty hard to the left while driving, but straightens a bit at higher speeds. Do you think this is just an alignment issue, or is it something worse (aka more expensive)? Thanks in advance for your help!

Check the basics first. I have a slow leak in one front tire and when it gets low I get a wicked pull to that side. Then I'd have a shop that is familiar with lifts check the alignment. I've hear that the factory settings most shops will use are not always correct after a lift. Best to go someplace that knows about lifts.

Check to see if it has an aftermarket steering stabilizer. Gas charged SS can cause that.

Is there anything you don't know?
