Re: braking pull???

It could be your brake proportion valve, rear brakes are not adjusted correctly, weak front suspension parts and road surface (maybe).

Good luck,

Could also be that your rear shoes are worn on one side more than the other. Or your drums might be oversize on one side. Could also be a stuck or sticky. caliper.

Re: braking pull???

Hello Matt
I had the same problem for a long time, no-one could solve the problem, freinds, brake shops, etc... I replaced all the brake lines in the frame last winter and comes to find out that I had a line pinched between the frame and the front crossmember, when the frame flexed it crushed the tube about 50%. It happened to me it could happen to you, who knows?
Just something to think about, Good luck.
