Two thoughts for ya on this:
1. drifting right on a crowned road is normal, more slope = more drift. To check if OK look for roads with different slopes and see what happens, you SHOULD get right drift on normal crown, left on any left slope, and neutral only where flat. Keeping an eye out for slope of pavement should answer the question...
2. Sometimes tires will actually "pull" one way, never noticed this until recently, but have a few recent experiences to confirm this with cheaper tires on different vehicles. Rotating tires and having different steering results would confirm in your case (it did on mine).

Luck with your diagnosis...
