I just purchased brand new tires, mounted and balanced.

Also, the same day had the truck aligned.

Several months ago, I did the steering rack bushing install.

I was given the alignment printout and everything was good.

The very next morning, while driving to work, the truck was pulling again. My guess is that the rear shocks are causing instability in the steering. I know they are worn and need replacement.

My question is, can worn-out rear shocks cause the truck to pull?

PS. as far as I know, everything else in the front end is fine.

I wouldn't see rear shocks causing a pull on a generally smooth road. I would be looking at tires (rotate fronts to rear one at
a time and check) sticking brake caliper on the front end. ( an infrared temp gun on the caliper is an easy way to check) and
a sticking ball joint is another possibility. These are a few normal causes in order of frequency.
