the only thing i can come up with is air pressure in your tire's. probably something simple and common we're over looking.

the most common reason for a hard brake pull is a sticking caliper.....

I would manually bleed it to be safe, paing particularly close attention to the left front. that caliper if it isnt working, would cause a pull to the right.....

also, what are the condtition of the rotors??? and did you lube your caliper slide pins when you put the pads on???
