Brakes

My brakes on my 2002 F250 are pulling real hard to the right, i noticed it a little before i went on a trip but didn't think much of it. by the time i got back from our little trip it was pulling so hard i decided to put new brakes on it, that didn't help at all. It pulls so bad to the right that i have to compensate by turning my wheel left, does any one know what is wrong with it?

Check the hubs. They maybe frozed up causing this problem. My co-worker just had this problem. Cost him 650 dollars. He replaced his hubs with the Warn hubs. I suggest you take the hubs apart and clean them and then reassemble.

Stuck piston, new rotors?? or did you use the old ones?, check Hub's, unit bearings and ball joints.
