pulls to Right after brake job???

Hi and thanks for the help in advance---I just replaced the brakes on my 2003 excursion 2wd, New pads, remanufactured calipers(a1 cardone), new hardware, and the rotors were turned,then i bled the lines and a couple days later bled them again, thought everything was good now it pulls to the right on light to medium braking --hard braking not to noticeable any thoughts on where i went wrong? could it be a bad caliper? thanks Ron

Ron, I think your problem is the bleeding of the brakes. Sounds like one tire is getting more brake pressure than the other. You MIGHT have some gunk in the brake lines causing uneven pressure.

I'm in no way a brake expert..

I would rebleed all the brakes starting at the rear passenger side tire, then the drivers side rear tire, the passenger front, finishing with driver side front. Try that out, also how are you bleeding the brakes. As in are you using one of them vaccuum hand pumps, do you have a guy in the truck working the brake pedal.

Remember

99.99% of the time it is a non pressure issue rather then a too much pressure issue. Start with bleeding again then look at the left front brake set up.

If the bleeding doesn't fix anything, check the LF pads for grease on them.

i think that the pads are causing the pull ,if it was a pressure issue you would feel it in the pedal, have run into several times , especialy aftermarket pads ,
easy to diag , swap pads from left to right see if pull goes to the left , make sure also that the rotors were machined properly , just my 2 cents
