Significant pull to the right when braking.

Just had this today, all of a sudden. DPwn the highway and pressing the brakes I was just about into the next lane to the right. Standard XJ disk and drum set up. Just had brake work about 10 days ago, 400 miles since then and just now happened. Anyone else or any inputs on this?

Thanks

Stay Cool

Look at the caliper that is opposite to the one pulling.

If it's pulling to the right check the left side brakes.

Go back to the place that did your brakes. Have them inspect the work.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

When you grease the rotors to stop the squealing, you have to grease them equally using the same grease. For example, if you use marine grease on the left side and standard grease on the right, and then run through a puddle, the vehicle will pull to the left. Go to any marine parts store and ask for "relative bearing grease". When younger and more daring, I would just grease the right side. You could make awesome "Bat turns" with little effort. Mom usually would ground me, if I forgot to clean it off. It was harder then as you had to pull the drums

What Tim said... and check your tire pressure. Uneven tires will cause it to pull.
