Brake Problems

Looking for help. I have a 2002 F-250. When applying a hard brake, the truck wants to turn a sharpe right. I have not been into a brake booster before, all signs are pointing to it. Any ideas??
Thanks
Tim

its either a non functional left front or right rear caliper...or more likely than that its a stuck right front or left rear caliper.....start looking at pad wear and brake dust on the wheels...

I have had the truck in the air already, both wheels lock when applying the brake, The right brake has alot more dust on it. My thoughts were that the Right was doing all the work, so I replaced the Left side caliper and the brake hoses on both sides. The only easy thing I have not done is replace the Right side caliper.

if the right rear is stuck...its gonna turn left beause it slows down the right rear...its cross actuon on rears....if its not applying it will turn right becasue the left will do all the work...since the fronts do 60% of the breaking....thats the most likely cause anyways...

With all the brake dust on the front right caliper, I'm I right by thinking it is doing all the work. so nothing should be wrong with the front right. I guess I will have to check in the rear brakes next
