Why am i pulling to the left when i brake?

I did alignment and wheels are balanced (33's). Is it a worn bushing??

Any advice would be appreciated.

Check the front brakes. Sounds like something could be causing the right side to be weak hence the pull to the left.

If you have disc's AA then you have a caliper that is bad or one of them has pads that are metal to metal, or even possibly a bad hose about to go.

If you have disc/drum, you could have one drum tighter than the other or one side is metal to metal or one Wcylinder is done.

Wouldn't I hear the brakes grinding at that point assuming that the pads were shot??

It also can be control arm bushings. IIRC it is often the rear arm bushings that create this result.
