MAKE SURE THAT THE CALIPER WAS PROPERLY BLED AFTER INSTALLATION. YOU NEED TWO PEOPLE TO DO THIS. ONE TO PUMP THE BRAKES AND ONE TO OPEN THE BLEEDER VALVE.

Front end pulls to right when applying brakes


Hi, it looks like the side that it pulls to is working as the brake is coming on and the other side is not it could be a seized caliper. Needs to be looked at.

1997 ford thunderbird: steering pulls to right when brakes applied. Calipers and brake fluid hose at brake is OK.


Defective, damaged, or contaminated brake pads or shoes on one side. Excessive wear of shoe or pad on one side. Defective drum brake or caliper, stuck piston or other damage.

The front end of my 92honda prelude is shaking and trying to pull hard to the left only when i apply the brakes but when Im not applying the brakes it pulls very little to the right. What would be making...


You need to replace the brake Pads, Turn the Rotors and probably replace the caliper on one of those sides. Either the right side isn't grabbing correctly or the left side is grabbing too much. Test the mater Cylinder for a possible blockage and make sure you bleed both calipers before you start replacing parts.

'97 sunfire pulls hard to the right when brakes applied. Changed pads and rotors on front end and bleed brakes but made no difference. Any suggestions?


When you changed the pads did you notice if one side was worn more than the other? The most common cause of pulling when you apply the brakes is a seized caliper. It won't work and the other does all the braking. Your left caliper is likely seized and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

2005 ford f350 4*4 hard pull to left .I have


When you say it pulls to the left, I am assuming only when the brakes are applied. And if the pull problem was there before you replaced the calipers, it is a problem like a plugged primary brake line from the master cylinder or proportioning valve. The master cylinder could be bad. The new right caliper could be bad. Need to disconnect hoses closer to master cylinder and hit brakes to see if fluid flows good. Then follow hoses down and repeat.

If this happened after the new pads were put on sometimes the pad length is different on the inner and outer pad and both longs on one side will grip more than the 2 short pads on the other side.

If this pulls without brakes on you may have stuck left 4x4.

Brake pedal is hard, pulls to driver side


May have a leaking right front caliper thats not applying evenly with the left.Look at the front wheels for excess brake dust.The left wheel should have more dust then the right.Also front left rotor may be pitted causing more friction and excess grabbing on the left.Any brake shop will pull the wheel off and inspect the rotor for free.Dont let them try to sell you two rotors or calipers if only one is bad.Replacing both right and left brake pads is OK

Replace both calipers, much easier..... your description indicates to me that your left caliper is hanging ON, overheating and when brakes are applied, the right caliper (not overheated) is more efficient than the left one......

ALL brake work must happen to BOTH SIDES, on that axle set, every time (meaning both front or both rear). Anything else just makes problems

Front disc brakes


Probably a restriction in the brake line from the master cylinder to the wheel.

Most of the time brake hoses do this (collapsed hose or hose inner liner) but the restriction could be anywhere from the point your front brake pressure divides to both wheels to the caliper of the wheel. The problem is not the caliper itself because the bleeder is able to relieve the pressure.
