Brakes pull to right Sign In

I need some advice on brake repair;
1994 GMC Safari / Z Vin / RWD
Rear Drums / Front Disc
Problem: The vehicle pulls to the right when the brakes are applied. The harder you apply them the more it pulls the vehicle and turns the wheels to the right. When driving straight on level pavement, there is no drift.
The following items have been replaced;
  • LF Caliper
  • Rear brake pads
  • Front rotors, pads, bearings, seals

I checked that all the tires are the same pressure. I rotated the front tires, still pulls. When I replaced the LF caliper, brake fluid would flow freely from the line so I'm guessing that the line is not clogged however I'm still pulling. Any ideas anyone?

You should never change one caliper. Replace the other caliper and both front brake hoses and you should be good.

Ditto! NEVER REPLACE JUST ONE CALIPER OR JUST ONE WHEEL CYLINDER!
