    I have a 2012 that is pulling hard right when breaking. I replaced the shocks, hubs, UCA, tie rods, and CV axels about 6 months ago. Was riding fine. Then started pulling left. Took it in to the dealer cause It looked like it was a caliper issue and they said the right caliper was sticking. Made sense because I had significant uneven wear on the pads. So I replaced the calipers, pads, and rotors on both sides. Still pulls hard right. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Peace of mind, pit on s/s lines, I did that 9 years ago on all 4 corners. You did put the pads on correctly also, right?

    Pads are on correctly. Going to pull it all apart again tomorrow. Can’t figure it out. Don’t think stainless lines will be the fix but who knows.

    I disagree w/ @CoronaRaptor ; NEVER modify a part or system that is exhibiting problems. You only increase the variable and make the equation more difficult to solve.

    Can you see any diff in the pads rotors? any scoring?

    if you are getting uneven braking then something is biting more than the other side.

    Are you pulling to the same side without braking?

    Is your tire pressure even side to side?

    Does braking exhibit any other symptoms?

    All things being equal, i’d suspect caliper, then pad/rotors but... it’s possible you may have air in the lines.

    How did you bleed the brakes? Is your pedal consistent?

    just to be clear, s/s brk lines is not modifying, its enhancing and ruling out one possible problem and I didn't say it was the issue, it is a suggestion. It is also cool not to agree or disagree on a suggestion. Glad you pointed it out. Feel better?

    Appreciate all of the thoughts. Everything is new. Caliper could be sticking but it was replaced because that was what the old one was doing. Air pressure in tires is equal. Break pedal feels great. It’s a mystery to me right now.

    If it was me, I would put a jack under the right side and get the tires off the ground 1 at a time and have someone pump the brakes and release, then see if you can spin each wheel by hand to make sure you don't have a sticking caliper, or faulty brake line.
    If that's okay, I would check the left side. Have someone hold pressure on the brake pedal while you crack the caliper bleeder valves, front than rear, and make sure you're getting good flow of fluid when you open the valve. If not, you may have defective lines, or other.

    I had the rubber hose between the hard brake line and the caliber collapse when caused the same issue, the brake was not releasing.
