breaking problems!

my tempo pulls hard to the drivers side when i break.

so i replaced the passengers side caliper because it was seized (seized open, not breaking) and bled the breaks very well. this helped the problem, although did not solve it. it still pulls to the drivers side under breaking pressure.

what else can cause this pulling under breaking? the master cylander? the drivers caliper needs replacement? ball joints? i'm out of ideas?!

Re: breaking problems!

Check your tire pressure, your alighment, and check your rear brakes. You may also have a shoe hung up. The e brake cables are nortorious for seizing and the first time you use it, it sticks.
