Default 98 f-150 pulling to left

have a 98 f-150 that is pulling to left when braking. put new caliper on right side because it was froze up. Bled all 4 brakes, and still pulls to left. put anti-seize on slides before putting new caliper on. anyone have any ideas?

When hitting the brakes, does the steering wheel jerk or truck just goes left. Front brakes will cause pull, associated with steering wheel movement. Rear brakes the feel is more in your butt. Hard to describe. How does it stop with just parking brake?

truck pulls to left and steering wheel turns to left. if i hold the steering wheel tight and hit the brakes it pulls to the left, but if i keep on the brakes it will quit pulling after about a second or two.

Am deffinately thinking left rear. As you describe, the left rear is hooking up good, this will make the truck want to pivot around that wheel. Take a good look at the back brakes.

just put on new right brake hose. Truck brakes like a dream now, no pulling. tried running wire through old hose, and it's plugged up solid. thanks everyone for you suggestions.

This forum is great, I have a 1997 that was pulling hard to the left. I changed the right cailper, due to bad looking phenolic pistions. The truck still continued to pull left only during initial hard braking. I read this post and changed the right hand flex line. The truck is flawless, now. Thanks.

I cleaned the ends of the old flex line and tried to blow air thru the hose, very low flow. New hose no restriction.

Thanks again F150 forum and all the guys and gilrs that take the time to post here.
