Truck wanders when driving

Need a little advice...my newly acquired 1970 c10 wanders left to right when driving....any thoughts on what it could be? Has cpp upper a arms..stock lowers with coil overs
Has agr steering box(new)

Steering box or alignment is what I was thinking....alignment looks good to the naked eye
Thanks for the help!!

Re: Truck wanders when driving

First would be to ensure everything is tight and looks like no worn parts or bushings. I would get it aligned and see what you have. It may look OK but if it has little or no caster it will not track well. I like 3 degrees of caster.

Subbed as I have similar problems. I'm pretty sure my issue is bumbsteer, followed by a way off alignment.

Can you post pics of your suspension setup? That would help.

Re: Truck wanders when driving

Toe in can cause a vehicle to wander as well as bumpsteer. Does it happen on rough roads with bumps or anytime, including smooth roads? If the road is flat and smooth then I would go with toe in first.
