I own a 1995 Mercury Cougar XR7 that when go to apply the brake the car will pull very hard to the right. I have to hold the steering wheel very tighly to keep the car in the road. I have taken it to two Mercury dealerships and many service stations and they are stumped. They cannot find out what is causing this problem. They have replaced most anything having to do with the brakes.

First, if you would like to receive USEFUL information about your vehicle, (ESPECIALLY when you are asking about engine controls) it would be nice if you would mention WHICH ENGINE your vehicle is equipped with!
1995 Mercury Cougar XR7 was equipped with 3 different engines: 3.8L NON-SC VIN CODE  3.8L SC VIN CODE [R] 4.6L V-8 VIN CODE [W]
The crank sensor for both of the 3.8L engines is located at the lower right FRONT of the engine.
The crank sensor for the 4.6L engine is located at the lower right REAR of the engine.
YOU WILL NEED TO GET A NEW BRAKE LINE MADE FOR YOUR WHEEL CYLINDER THIS WILL HAVE A THREDED NUT WHICH WILL FIT INTO A HOLE IN THE WHEEL CYLINDER, IF THE BRAKE IS AT THE MASTER CYLINDER YOU WILL STILL NEED A NEW ONE MADE FOR THIS , GO TO A MOTOR SHOP WITH YEAR OF CAR AND GET A NEW ONE , OR GO TO A CAR BREAKERS YARD FOR USED ONE .
this car needs the lower ball joints checked for excessive play, when pressing the brake pedal the excess play is transferred to the weakest point. the ball joint can be pressed out of the lower control arm or purchased new as a new control arm.
