    Ok one day my car started pulling left when braking so i replaced the right caliper in front ofcourse. everything was fine then a couple of days later it started pulling right so i just now replaced the left and it still pulls hard right. I think it even got worse. what can i do? is it possible that the left rear drum is failing. I blead the breaks but i don't know if i did it right.

    Did you check the condition of the rear brakes? I'd pull the drums and see whats going on, making sure there are no leaks from the wheel cylinders and that the shoes and drums are within specs. The shoes should have some good thickness left on them and the drums should not be scored or gouged. You might just have a siezed adjuster on one side.
