Hi. Starting to snow here. And if im rear tires spin which isnt hard to do in my truck. Light in the back. But even if I lose a bit of traction in the back something happens and the truck will pull extremely hard to the right I can even feel the force in the steering wheel. Kinda feels like the truck is dragging something. Kind of a lagging feeling. When I put the truck in reverse then back in drive it corrects the problem. Whats going on?
btw its about 170000 km not miles

It could be your brake caliber on that side sticking, the same thing happened to me. Also seems to be worse when it rains.

Yes I did figure it out. Abs problem. Pulled the fuse. Now it doesnt do that anymore. Ill fix it in the summertime. Too cold now.
And lol at hard to believe its a sticking brake calliper. If you are experiencing the same problem I had. You cant let go of the steering wheel for any ammount of time without your vehicle flying to the left or right. Personally when it happened to me I had told my steering wheel 45 degrees to the left to keep the vehicle straight till it was safe to pull over or slow down.

Yes mine is very hard to keep straight and funny thing is if I turn to the left the whole truck seems to jerk like I am in 4 wheel drive on dry pavement.
