Brakes Applied Truck Pulls Right.

Truck just started pulling to the right the other day when I apply the brakes. Trying to see if anyone has any insight to help determine if one of the calipers is bad or possibly a brake line collapsing. Any help would be greatly appreciated as want to get it corrected. Thanks in advance.

Re: Brakes Applied Truck Pulls Right.

Normally that would mean the left is stuck and not working.

Re: Brakes Applied Truck Pulls Right.

Trucks been aligned and did brakes. Everything worked fine up to a couple of days ago, I do agree that there is a good possibilty that the left is the problem but trying to figure out if the caliper is stuck open or if the brake line has collapsed.

Mine pulls a little if I get too much dirt up in there...have you been in a lot of dirt lately?

Re: Brakes Applied Truck Pulls Right.

If your rubber brake lines look cracked or swelled / blistered in any area between the inner fender and the caliper, I'd change them.
It's tough to differentiate between a stuck caliper and an internally damaged brake line without removing the whole mess, making sure you can compress the caliper with a clamp / BFPs and removing the line to make sure it is not internally damaged.

Good luck.

Re: Brakes Applied Truck Pulls Right.

When a hose collapses it will usally hold the brake on and pull without the brakes being applied. Best thing to do is jack up the left and see if its easy to turn the wheel, then have someone apply the brakes a little and see it if locks the wheel. If it doesn't the caliper is stuck if it does release the brake and see if it is easy to turn again. If it stays locked open the bleeder screw, if it unlocks its the hose if it still stays lock we're back to the the caliper. If everything checks out ok, go to the right.

Re: Brakes Applied Truck Pulls Right.

Thanks for all the info, should be pretty easy to troubleshoot now that you all pointed me in the right direction. I'll post the outcome. Thanks again.
