I've got an 1989 K5 with a 2 in lift on it. Anyway, It pulls to the right
when you brake, the harder you brake, the worse it is. We've replaced both
front hoses, calipers, had the rear hoses blown out, new wheel cylinders,
and a proportioning valve. It's change how it does it, but it still pulls to
the right, but not the steering wheel. The entire truck just moves to the
right when you brake. It doesn't pull when your driving, just when you hit
the brakes. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks in advance
well its definately in the brake system. Have you by any chance put
anything OTHER than BRAKE FLUID in the truck? If so you have contaminated it
and your new hoses on front are colapsing. I have had this happen to a car
because they put vegtable oil or tranny fluid in the brake fluid.
Raise the truck off the ground and support on jack stands. Put the
truck in drive , transfer case in 4 HI, lock outs in "lock" and let it
idle. then have someone start pressing the brake peddle. One wheel
should be spinning faster then the other 3. Turn it off, and start
inspecting. If suspect you have a blocked line, disconnect BOTH end and
clear the line with compressed air. If a internal blockage blows out,
inspect the line for rust, or rubber particals. If the line does not
clear out, look for a pinch, kink, or crushed section of the line.
In the front you have a distrobution block for side to side. Some times
they can also get blocked.
