    Dealer said if I buy aftermarket leaf springs myself they will install them for around $400 total. I will explore that if this pull on hard braking becomes annoying. Normal stopping is no issue, don't notice the pull. Guess my driving style needs some adjustment.

    I don't buy this scenario, swing by a harbor freight and invest $25 in a infrared thermometer, then go do some hard stops several in a row on a side road with no traffic, then hop out and check the temp of each rotor/drum, if one is hotter than the other then that's your suspect, rotors will be different temps than the drums but left and right should be approx the same temp

    also did they show you visually while truck was on a rack how the leaf spring is a problem?
