04 pulls left under braking

Truck is pulling left only under braking, brakes release the pull stops, no uneven ware on pads, replaced the front rubber lines, no air in the system, with the front end in the air you can spin the tires and they seem to come on similar to each other. Kind of at a loss, I have some with cash in hand that made a stupid offer on this truck so I need to get this set straight, thanks

99% of the time it either a hose or a caliper that cause a pull. Since you put new hoses on, I'd pull the left caliper and see if the slide pins are sticking.

Put a clamp on the left side hose and drive it....it will probably go away. Then look at the right side caliper.

Be careful.

Sounds like either air (ya, I know you said you bled it) or the right caliper piston. Of course, you may have a twisted line?

If it pulls to the left under braking, I'd suspect right caliper.

Slides on the passanger side are frozen, but in the air the caliper was stopping the tire, but I'm hoping it was getting less preasure and that's my issue there, trying to free the pins before spending the $60 on the caliper but this is the only thing I have found wrong

By the way what size bulb is under the hood? I have owned this truck 4 years and as I was leaning on my truck drinkibg a beer on my phone typing that message I noticed the socket under the hood....

You'll never be able to diagnose a caliper by hand. Spend the $60.00 and save yourself the headache.

That or rebuild it. Most caliper manufacturers have rebuild kits you can order.
