Question 99 psd pulling to the right when braking.

hey all i need help! im driving myself crazy with this truck! last monday out of no where my truck started pulling really hard to the right while applying the brakes more so when i use the brakes more and they pull harder. here are the things ive done so far to try to fix the problem, 2 sets on new LF & RF calipers, new rubber brakes lines on both front sides, checked wheel bearings they are ok, replaced drag link end, took apart 4x4 locking hubs and greased, cleaned all sliders they are ok!, ball joints are good, i checked tire pressure and i even rotated the tires, still no good. i even had the rotors turned lastnight but the pulling is less severe but still pulling to the right i also swapped the caliper assemblies from side to side and that didnt help. i dont know how to fix this problem! any advice or suggestions? thank you, dan

same problem!

I have a 2000 excursion 7.3 4x4. Same problem!

I REPLACED EVERYTHING in the front! Replaced rotors, calipers and pads. Driving around the neighborhood (slow like 35 or below) and I slam on the brakes its seems to almost always be good.

When I go on the freeway for a few mile and brake then it pulls to the left pretty hard.

I have re-bled the lines and that didnt help.

Only thing I can think of is the wire "spring" that goes under the pads. I had a heck of a time to get those to stay still when installing it, wondering if that would make a difference if I did it wrong?


Wonder if its really the BACK brakes and nothing to do with the front at all?

Maybe the master cylinder?

Hope someone has had the same trouble so I dont wind up replacing everything!

spring on back of pads

Do you think the flat wire "spring" has anything to do with it? Anyone know what that does?

working again

The wire springs on the front pads DOES make a huge difference. I had my sone helping when I first replaced the front pads and for whatever reason the springs on one side were not installed properly. I installed them properly and it appears the pulling has stopped. I didnt have any time to go for more than an around the block test, but will test today. But it appears at this time this is fixed.

I did also check all of the brakes to make sure everything else was ok.
