Not picking on any one brand, but riding mowers and garden tractors are notorious for having very poorly designed steering components.

Get the weight off the front wheels and check everything for wear, broken welds, bent links, etc.

Seems every riding mower I ever had, (until I went zero turn) I had to reinforce the front end, lots of fabing heavier parts to replace the under engineered original ones.

The front right tire/wheel is also about 1" outside rear wheel line and left front is 1" inside rear wheel line. Maybe front part of frame is bent. Will look at components after getting the weight off of wheels to move freely. Maybe cast front axle damaged/tweaked.

If I am reading that correctly the tractor is what we call "dog tracking". It is caused by the non-steering axle not being in correct alignment. Tractor must have taken a big hit at some point. Your frame and axles are not square, they are forming a diamond shape with the right rear being ahead of the left rear as viewed from the top.
