Hi! The steering column replacement has nothing to do with this but I do suspect a faulty brake piston. The brake piston on the right is sticking to the pads thats why it has uneven stopping power. You will need to have the brake piston seal replaced for the rubber is surely worn. Now you'll have an idea on what to tell your mechanic. This will shed some light to him. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I have recently developed a loud "rattle" in the

if this only happens when you apply the brakes it most likely sounds to me like your rotor is warped and needs to be replaced... if you are going to be doing this make sure that you replace both sides and do the brake pads as well.. the brake system on a car is not something that one should cheap out on.

'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.

The left rear brake caliper on my 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII doesn't get as much pressure as the other 3 wheels which makes the car pull to the right when you put on the brakes.I have replaced the rotors,...

On most cars, the pressure equalizer valve is located on a terminal block near the lower part of the front of the car.
The terminal block, or manifold, is usually made of aluminum, and has many brake lines attached to it.
It may be hidden from view behind a metal or plastic panel.
I should like to tell you that replacing it will solve your problem, but please do not count on this.
If you have the option, you might ask an honest person at a Lincoln dealership parts department how many pressure equalizer valves they have sold in the last year.
Don't be surprised if he or she says "none".
God bless your efforts.

1999 volvo v70 - front left brake often pulses badly at highway speed in near freezing weather, pulling car to the left. Pulses and pulls without brakes being applied. Car brakes normally when brakes...

You have a frozen or seized brake caliper it must be replaced and a new rotor must be installed because as a result the heat from the condition has warped the rotor.

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

When I drive over 40 mph it pulls to the right, then to the back

You are going to have to do some looking to find this.
Check that the wheels turn freely when off the ground. any binding can indicate a brake staying applied. (usually an internally failed brake hose (not line) This is often mis-diagnosed as a bad caliper. Sometimes you can see a "blue" rotor on the one that's hanging up, or feel an excessive amount of heat from that wheel right after this happens.
Yes, check suspension parts and bearings but usually they will cause problems at all speeds, and cause "clunking" noises stopping, starting off and in turns.

If they fill up when the car is running you're ok. If they stay low all the time, have them checked.
