2005 s-10 Blazer Strange Behavior

I gave my daughter my 2005 4x4 Blazer after she drove it for 15 miles in 4 wheel low. This destroyed the 4 wheel capability. It was going to be too expensive to repair, so we accepted the vehicle would be 2 wheel drive from now on.

Now, when backing on snow, the vehicle pulls sharply to the left (driver's side).

She's gotten stuck 3 times when the vehicle pulled off the side of her driveway into deeper snow.

I, of course, thought she was doing something wrong (limited experience).

But today, I tried it for myself and it did the same thing to me.

It has 4 new snow tires on it, and I definitely held the wheel straight.

What gives? I presume it's something to do with the wrecked 4 wheel drive?

Its pulling only when on snow?

Is the steering pulling in any direction like the front-end is out of alignment when driving down the road in either forward or reverse?

Are you sure the front-end is "wrecked" & its only in 2 wheel drive? Or could the front-end be wrecked & either fully or partially (on one side) is locked in?

Here is what I want you to do, put her in the Blazer & you drive in another vehicle behind her. See if its going down the road crooked or slightly sideways.

Any other info you can think of will help..

What were the road conditions when she drove it in 4 wheel low? Has anyone checked out the 4 wheel drive for damage? 15 or 1500 miles in 4 wheel low won't hurt anything [other than fuel mileage] as long as the tires can slip [not dry pavement] The front wheel drive being disconnected or otherwise not working doesn't affect the rear tires.
