Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek
Your RIGHT side brake disk caliper is probably siezed so all braking power is going to the left causing the pull.
Wheel off, disk pads out, pump out the pistons in the caliper JUST A LITTLE. Clean with a copper brush and brake fluid until polished (Careful not to catch the rubber dust seals). Push pistons back in. Re-fit pads and wheel.
Other thoughts on this. Check for a lip on the disk caused by wear as well.
That's the super cheap, pay nothing for parts option. You should consider:
Changing both sets of brake pads
If the disks are worn, changing the disks too (you may be able to grind a lip off if you have the nerve).
If the caliper still sticks, new pistons or piston and caliper
