My truck is not lifted. should I still take it to dealership or independent.?

if you're not satisfied with your dealer's alignment, you've answered your own question. always ask for a readout of the alignment

What you are experience is caster pull due to the difference in caster from both sides. Your vehicle will pull to the side of least positive caster. It doesn't matter if you have high caster. You need to set the caster both sides the same. Or if you live where the roads have a lot crowning to the right, you might have to set it to pull left (increase positive caster on right) to make it track straight.

Also the difference in camber between both side can also cause pulling.

No the toe doesn't affect which side your vehicle pulls. Whoever says you need to adjust your tie rods doesn't know what he is talking about. Toe affects tire wear and the clocking of your steering wheel.

Iím about take to mine in. 2020 with 11,300 miles. Tracks left on the highway. Apparently alignment covered under warranty until 12,000 miles so itís going to Toyota this time.

I have a 19 pro and itís would do the same thing and steering wheel would have a little shake. Took it to the dealership yesterday got an alignment and did a road force balance and boom everything was gone. Rides smooth again. I think it all comes down to if the tech really knows their 💩. I had discount tire mount and balance that didnít help and a non Toyota shop do an alignment and it never fixed the problem.

Had the alignment done yesterday at the dealer. They ended up adjusting toe. Drives so much better now. Just wish alignment warranty was longer than 12k miles.
