Something else to check is the front axle shaft u-joints. On a lot of the older trucks when they go bad they will cause a severe pull when turning, because they are siezes. This makes the opposing side push. In order to inspect them properly, the hubs should be removed. They shouldn't "fly apart" unless they are broken, but you can pull them out and just lay them out on the ground like they came out of the truck. Then you have to remove the brakes and the hub. The shaft will slide out (sometimes a little effort is required) and you should be able to tell if the u-joints are frozen.
