Steering Issues

My t100 is not tracking straight, it's pulling to the left and no amount of toe adjustments is helping,even with steering trim 3/4 to the right doesn't correct the problem. Anyone has any idea what the problem might be. Is it possible that my diffs are transmitting more power to the left side?

Cleaned all the bearings and its still doing it and it happens at slow speed so I guess it's the steering servo.

disconnect the servo saver and move the steering back and forth by hand. if you feel a snag or resistance anywhere then investigate further. make sure one wheel isn't tightened down too tight.

I think i figured it out. I might be wrong though. I'm running stock shocks and varying amounts of fluid has leaked from them which means i have un-equal damping in my shocks. I don't have shock fluid to replace it so I have to bare with this until my order of GPM aluminum shocks and 40 wt. shock oil arrives.
So to test this i swapped the left and right front shocks and though it still drifts to the left, it's not as bad as before. So i'm guessing the un-equal shock situation and the fact that most weight is on the left due to the battery is what is causing the problem. will know for sure when my new shocks get here.
