Lifted 2.5", Aligned, still pulls right.....

So had it lifted 2.5", shocks, springs. Had alignment done, they tell me my caster is adjusted all the way and they can not get rid of the pull to the right. I have one person telling me I need to add sway bar extenders or quick disco's to meet the lift size? Is this person correct or is there something else I need to look at?

You should correct your sway bar angle, but that should not necessary affect side to side pulling.

Trying rotating your tires first. Rears go straight to the front and fronts crisscross to the back.

Maybe a Slightly Stuck Brake Caliper or Drum?

What's the easiest way to diagnose that?

Chock the Rear Wheels, Jack the Front-End Up, Spin the Driver Side Wheel by Hand, then Spin the Pass Side Tire. They should Both Spin Freely, with about the same amount of Resistance.

If they both Feel the same, let the Front Down, Chock the Front Wheels, Jack the Rear-End Up, and do that same as you did in the Front.

If the Rears Spin with the same amount of Resistance, it's not a Stuck Caliper or Drum.

Also, Check that your E-Brake is all the way Down (Released) as well. That's something Stupid and Easy to Overlook.
