brakes pull to right

I have a 1978 Chev 4x4 short box 350/350 combo. When I bought the truck it pulled to the right when you hit the brakes. I replaced both calipers, had the brakes power bled at a local shop, and it still pulls to the right. Any ideas?

Sounds like the rubber hose on the right side may be bad....They break down inside sometimes and a small piece of rubber could have come loose inside acting like a flapper valve and not letting the fluid return, thus keeping a little extra pressure on the right caliper.

Check "66 Nova Brakes" by Nettio, same forum, dated 9-09-2005 for his experience with his braking system for ideas. It may help!

Bad shocks will do it to. Especially if it's a timed. It'll pull for a second then stop pulling under even brake pressure.

I agree with the hoses....replace them both.
