    I replaced the passenger and driverside calipers and brake shoes because my Blazer was pulling to the driver side. I also checked the bearing adjustment on both sides also while I had it in the air. Well its still pulling to the driver side when the brakes are applied. I also bled the brakes with a vaccum pump. Any ideas?

    If it is turning the wheel its the front, if it feels like the whole truck is pulling or veering then you need to check the back. If one is grabbing better than the other you will get this. Also, maybe try purging all the old fluid out. Could have some cotaminants blocking up the propotioning valve. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Replace the brake hoses. That will solve your problem. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Replaced all mine with the lift kit install and I still have the problem. Somedays it wont pull at all till they get nice and hot, then other days the start pulling bout the same time the computer goes in closed loop. So it has to do with friction/heat at some point in the equation or since its inconsistant it points more towards to the fluid having "particulate contamination". **/forums/images/icons/grin.gif Throw a party <- he said a big word.
