2000 TJ pulls to the left.

Hi all, I have had my 2000 TJ for a couple months now, and it always pulls to the left. It's more of a pull than a drift.. It pulls so hard that I can actually change lanes just by taking my hands off the steering wheel. When parked, the steering wheel automatically slacks to the left. I have had it alligned twice, and had the tires balanced and rotated. Neither of these did anything to fix the problem, and all the shop told me was "Well it is a jeep." I'm getting very annoyed and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions?

One of the possible answers is that someone installed a lift and adjusted the draglink and not the panhard. They would be in bind and pull, more on the drivers side if the panhard was not adjusted.

The obvious answer would be alignment but I assume it has been checked...

My jeep recently pulled to the left but also pulled to right when braking. It ended up being my caliper on driver side seized. An easy way to check is after a drive, feel your rims, if one(or two) is hotter than the rest, its a bad caliper. Not a very hard fix
