    When I step on the brakes, my '94 blazer 1500 will pull to the right what is causing this. I have a hard time keeping it straight when i step on the brakes. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Check your front brakes, right side could be grabbing, or left side might not be working, either situation could make it pull right. It could also be suspension related, something worn or loose allowing the suspension to shift under braking and causing it to steer right.

    Check the air pressure in the tires, if you have access to the rotors, check to see if they are grooving from the pads...if you just did a break job on them did you get the kit from Chevy? It has new o-rings and grease to get the job done right /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    What type wheels on it.I used 10's for a while and they were rough on the wheel bearings.Would cause low pedal on first pump pulled any direction, not like caliper sticking which acts the same each time stopping.Changed to older 8 inch rally wheels and ended bearing trouble,except for getting mud in them.Just can't seem to stay out of it for some reason. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
