Pulling

After driving in a field of mud this last Saturday I am noticing some pulling to the right. Apply the brakes and it wants to go left. Rears wanna lock up.

Clean the mud out of the brakes. Front and rear, especially inside the rear drum brakes.

Sadly, the rear drums actually get mud inside them. And, the front will pull with or without brake pedal just from the mud on the inside of the wheels. A little mud on the rotors and the brakes will pull.

We have non stop mud here and it is the curse of those who wheel in the midwest. Our friends in the West don't seem to have this trouble so much.
