Question about Cars & Trucks
I replaced both front hub assembly's.then i replaced both calipers and pads.then i replaced the rubber brake line on the passenger side.
1. Harder pedal feel=obstruction in one of the brake lines. Re-bleed the lines properly. 2. . Remove wheels, one at a time, and look at rotors. One that is BLUE-ish in color is the one that has dragging caliper. Same time, spin rotor by hand, listening to any sounds of brake pad catching on it. You should have only gentle touch. 3. Inspect brake pads. If one pad is much more worn out than the opposite one, caliper is sticky, forcing it into rotor OR caliper guides have to be REALLY lubricated. Caliper must slide back-for on guides about 1/4 inch for that truck. 4. My bet is you do not have sticky caliper. You have obstruction in a line, causing that side actually to produce LESS braking power, as in opposite to sticky caliper. That resulting in higher braking force on the opposite side and rotational moment towards it. 5. CHECK TIRE PRESSURE. It should be equal on both sides and slightly higher on the front due to extra power train load to be carried. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. GOOD LUCK and GOD BLESS YOU.

If you replaced the Brake line on the left and it's pulling to the right you may need to replace that brake line as well. As far as sitting still, that sounds like the power steering pump.

check that the caliper slides are free and that you refiited the anti squel plates on the back of the new pads

Sounds like you still have air in your brake lines. Make sure all your brake lines are tight. Then bleed again. Bleed the trouble side first, meaning right side, then go to front left, back left then back right, make sure that your brake fluid is also full
