alignment and or tires can also cause pulling when braking

Anybody check the rear brake operation ? Over the years many times after totally rebuilding the front brakes and rotors and calipers etc I have seen the rear brake brakes be the culprit, Dont overlook them. Tires are also a good area to look , have them Road Force balance them and find which one may have excessive road force, The balancer will tell them which tire to put where. ie; on which corner of the truck.

thanks i had a Ford Factory Technician come out and he told my local dealer to swap pads left to right....so needless to say after arguing with this guy for 20 mins on how this was going to prove nothing and it is a waste of time. they switched pads and what do you know same problem........ sometimes ppl just dont want the 20 year old kid to be right

Did they honestly check your alignment and rotate your tires? Porportioning valves are usually set up front to rear, I guess you'll find out tomorrow.

Never heard of a proportioning valve inside a master cylinder. It is a seperate part on most vehicles Your truck has hydraulic ABS and is controlled electronicaly. Did they check the rear brakes yet? Maybe take it to a dealer with a 4 wheel skid plate that will measure the braking ability of all 4 wheels.
