2017 pulls left

Looking for input as to driving above 30mph and pulling to the left. I have had 2- 4 way alignments, new tires all the way around and new brakes on the front. Nothing seems to affect it, anyone else having this issue? I currently have 34K miles and bought this second hand.

I've noticed my 2014 SHO doing the same. It's minor at the moment, even on flat surfaces, but ongoing for a while. New tires all the way around recently and it shows straight on the rack.

It could be something underneath got tweaked slightly. We've got some killer potholes up here.
How badly does it pull?

At times if I let go of the wheel I can enter the left lane inside of 2 seconds at 60mph. Other times it will pull slightly right or track straight. There is NO consistency while driving. I am trying to see if there is a correlation with doing a left hand turn and pulling left and a right hand turn and straightening out, I cannot pin-point it.

Issue solved, MikeB-40 you were right, something got tweaked or installed wrong at the factory. Right rear spring was not where it was supposed to be. Re-positioned spring, took on a 200 mile test drive, car drove normal.
