front end alignment and lift kit

I have an 87 f150 4x4. I have just put on a 4" suspension lift and new 33" tires. All went well with no major problems. before the lift the truck drove fine ,didn't pull either way,but now after taking it in to have the front end aligned ,it pulls severly to the right. I only have toe in/out adjustments which were made at the tire shop where it was aligned. I have since put caster adjustable radious arm bushings in but to no avail,it still pulls no matter what location I have them in. My question is what else can I do to help it drive straight? I also replaced the tie rod ends bfore I had it aligned . Any help would b greatly appreciated.

the lift would have caused the diff to rotate forwards, the alignment would have adjusted the toe in/out, but not caster/camber which is what was affected. you have since put in the adjusting bushes, now the toe in/out may be affected, as you have effectivly rolled the diff back. good luck
