    so after fixing the rear drum delimma, my front autozone pads have been squealling miserably for a few weeks, and they're pretty new, so i got pissed and decided to change them. but before i did, my right front brake has been intermittently applying pressure by itself, ill be driving down the road, and it'll apply, pulling the wheel to the right, so i turn it left so i dont fly off the road, then it lets off, and i swerve hard left almost into the other lane. this is dangerous, and i hate it, could it be my power steering? i replaced the pads with wagnor thermo quiets, so now they dont squeal, but still pulls, anyone know anything about this?? how to fix it?? thanks..

    It applies pressure without pressing the brake pedal?

    The truck is possessed, burn it.

    Replace the flex hoses and re-install the calipers using silicone dielectric grease on all of the wear/contact points btwn the caliper and the caliper bracket.

    Bad brake caliper. Had one go south on me a month ago. Became almost undrivable. Replace them both. $16 or so from O'reilly's w/ the old cores.
