truck is pullin hard right?

Alright guys I need a little help with my latest problem. When I put my truck in 4x4 and stall it up to launch, my truck will pull REAL hard to the right when i get out of 4x4. It's not just a little pull like a mis-alignment, it seems like it wants to make a 90 degree turn. After a few good hard pushes on the brakes it seems to go back to normal. I didn't know if it was possible for a brake pad to stick and cause the truck to pull to one side or what.

thanks for any help

i would just jack the front end up and take tires and wheels off and just inspect them both and while you got the front end up in the air try to just spin the right side with your hand and look to see if your pad is rubbing or what. look at your brake pads on both side and see if one side has less pad than the other and i would just take those caliper bolts out and use some dry lubricant.
