Breaks pulling to right

95 12v 2500 pulling hard to right when you apply breaks quickly. Hard steering to the left when breaking. Pulled front tires both sides rotors look great and pads worn evenly. Break hoses all look in good shape. Lines as well.No drag on front wheels or rear wheels. Looking for a direction to go in to find the issue.

The flex brake lines fail internally. Looking good means nothing. When is the last time the brake fluid was flushed?

I'm not sure if it was ever even done. Just bought the truck from inlaws. Wasn't used much 69k farm truck spent most of its life in a barn.

My two cents is either the soft hose or a sticking driver side brake caliper

If I mash the breaks and let go of the wheel going 5mph it will take me off the road instantly. But letting off it will straighten right back out. Could it be that the opposite side is not working at all? I'll have to get someone to press breaks while I'll try and turn wheels around

Is the driver side bleeder dry? I had the same problem and ended up that the bleader wouldn’t seal good and would loose just enough fluid on the initial hard brake that it would pull the opposite direction. It would be a good idea to replace both front soft lines as well.

When I was inspecting breaks today bleeders looked dry, I didn't see any dampness

Larger front soft lines for break fluid. smaller line with plastic/rubber pieces every few inches going to caliper looks to be a censor? What is that? ABS?

My truck did this I replace all the brake lines hoses calipers wheel cylinders master cylinder. And still didnt fix it. So I put a wilwood proportioning valve on and got rid of the abs block. That fix my issue. Brakes work great now. They never work this good before

I had a similar issue and it turned out to be a worn out unit bearing allowing one of the rotors to wobble a bit, knocking the brake pads back in the calipers, so that when I hit the brakes the pads on one side weren't touching the rotor. The result was the truck pulled hard to the opposite side on initial braking then steadied out. At 69K miles I wouldn't think a front bearing would be worn out, but farm use can put unusual wear on things.My truck doesn't have front ABS (rear only), but checking a unit bearing is free and easy.

Check your rear brakes, too. You might not think the rears would have as much effect, and I agree that it's not as likely, but I remember a thread quite a while back by someone who had a brake-pull issue and it turned out to be a rear-brake issue.
