Brakes pull hard to the right.

There is only 16,000 on the truck and when I hit the brakes hard the truck dives to the right HARD. Whats my best route to get this to stop. Also I have a 08 drw f350 that I use for hauling from oklahoma to california and it has just over 20,000 on it. About how long are brakes lasting on these trucks. I dont want to hit the cahone pass and not be able to stop one time. Thanks

may sound crazy but i replaced my brakes, rotors, pads, calipers, they must have been defected or something but it was all seized up, truck pulled real hard to the left, turned out it was my front right caliper

Hrm. I would take it back to the dealer, since you only have 16K miles on it.

could be a frozen caliper, dealer should take care of it with 16k on it.
