Car pulls to right when braking.

It has been going on for a while but has recently gotten worse. If I brake with my hands off the wheel I can see the wheel move. I have just put new calipers, pads, rotors, and new front brake hoses on and the problem is still there. Also have gotten new tires and a front end alignment recently. Let me know of any other ideas

Wow, that's gotta be irritating. Maybe a wheel bearing? Have you done any work to the rear brakes?

I forgot to mention I did the bearings when I did the front brakes. Haven't done anything in the rear except for pads. My car has 165,000 miles on it.

That is really odd! How bad does it pull? How does the pedal feel?

The pedal feels great had plenty of braking power. It pulls enough to be annoying and have to correct it.

If you still have the original calipers on the back it could be a rusted guide pin. Mine had the rubber boot tear and water got in and rusted the guide pin on the right side. Caused the pads to wear uneven and brake pull

The problem could be a rear caliper as said above. Or maybe the master cylinder? But I think one line supplies both front calipers and the other line supplies the rear but I'm not positive.

Did you bleed the brakes properly? When you replaced the front calipers there could be air in one of the lines, and the caliper is not gettin as strong a bite as the other side.

I did bleed the brakes properly. This was happening before I touched the brakes. So I guess my next step it looking at the rear

Gotcha. Could be the stock hoses are expanding more on one side than another too. I'm just thinking online, aka outloud lol

Ah, I was hoping that was it. Buddy had the same issue with a 2 month old Fusion. No one could figure it out. I went to borrow it, it pulled right real hard...checked the air pressure, and the front passenger was near 20 with the others ~45.

Dude never even said thanks.

That's when you let some of the air out of the opposite tire and tell him the other side is doing it now lol
