to the left??
 
hey guys, this has been going on for a while, i just finally got around to asking about it.

anyways, when i come to a stop my steering wheel tends to drift to the left hand side, and if i stomp on the brakes hard it will squeak real loud and jerk to the left hand side. i did the brakes about 8 thousand miles ago.

any help is appreciated.

Sounds like you have a bad caliper...

Mine had a little bit of a pull and I think it was because my rotors got a little tweaked. I put new rotors on there and the problem has all but disappeared.

By the way what do you mean by "did the brakes"? Just changed the pads?

....to the left, everything you own in the box to the left.... :silly:




Yeah, what exactly did you do when you "did the brakes"? Just change the pads? Pads and rotors? Pads and turned rotors? Any irregular side to side brake wear?

also i forget to mention that when i lay on the brakes really hard my wheel pulls to the left as well as it shakes pretty good, like vibrates to a stop.


thanks again.
