ya i just noticed today when i brake a little hard my truck pulls to the left bad what could this be from???
its wierd tho it only does it like a hang full of times a week? its not all the time could it be a air buble in the brake line or?

could be that you are not noticing it all the time. could be equal tire pressure. Air in the lines would not cause this.

Have you got P rated or LT rated tires? LT's are supposed to have about 50psi in them for proper inflation. As opposed to the P rated ones being a max of 35 psi typically.

The way we do it at our shop is-
If it is a load rated LT tire that is on a vehicle that was made for p-metric tires inflate to 12 psi over what the placard says. So in other words 50 psi is exactly correct. Otherwise the tire will run hotter increasing the chance of a structural failure. But his problem is most likely the R/F brake hose is plugged causing it to pull to the side of the remaining working caliper or it has extremely wasted front-end parts. If it was a tire pull then it should pull all the time not just during braking.

So in other words, does anyone think that the Firestone ATX explorer recall happened because of something entirely Firestone's fault? Sounds like to me that it was also Ford's fault for suggesting 26 psi as the cold inflation pressure on them. At least 30 psi is now recommended on those model year explorers that had those tires. Anyone ever think of that? If you havent noticed I work at Firestone.
