    When I brake hard at high speeds I get a lot of thumping from the right front and it pulls to the right. Anyone have any ideas of what it might be? I figure the rotor must be warped, but why is it pulling, from the high spots? This is on a d60 front axle. Thanks, Pete.

    <font color=blue>Check that the piston in the caliper isnt frozen and that the caliper can slide on the mounting bracket

    Check for misadjusted wheel bearing, wore out king pin, and a wore out tie rod end.
