F250 pulls left when braking...just a bit
Now, there's more to this story but I'll give the basics:
08 f250 CC 6.4. 50k miles, assuming all OEM brakes. New wheels/tires but tires done twice due to a separate issue. Braking issue is still there, exactly the same. Lets rule out wheels/tires.
Now normally, IMO, when braking and you get a pull to the left, the right caliper is dragging at some point, be it pins or caliper.
Here's the main detail. This started after the LEFT front caliper hung up on me. It only did it once and for about a mile and released after a stop. It got hot and I smelled and felt the pull as I was driving. Full stop and it went away, never happened again.
100% certain it was the left caliper.
Pads are visibly worn to my eye without removing the wheel and inspecting. I was going to just do new rotors and pads but it got me thinking, why would it pull left after this event?
I should add, this is not noticeable until speeds above 50 mph.
