I have a 1981 Chevy 6 cylinder pickup truck that has 150,000 miles. The problem is that when I step onto the brakes the truck will pull to the right. It doesn't do it all the time. I have checked and brakes pads and rotors are in great shape. The pedal is solid when stepped on. What could be the problem?
The caliper on the right side is grabbing harder than the one on the left. Either the right one is sticking or the left one is soft.
