Braking Problem

Hi Joe,

This is on my 1989 Camaro, Vin E, 305 TBI.

I have replaced all front end components. That is:

Inner and outer tie rods
Control arm Bushings
Ball Joints
Idler Arm
Struts and upper strut bearing/housings
End link bushings/stabilizer bar bushings

I also replaced:

Inner and outer wheel bearings
brake pads
cut rotors
Did complete front end alignment

However, when I stab the brakes/lean on them heavy, I sometimes get a violent pull to the right..........what could be the cause of this?

Thank you,

Maitai

You have a stuck caliper or a clogged rubber brake hose.

Change both brake hoses and rebleed the system. If that doesn't help, change both calipers.

The brake hoses rot from the inside out and act as check valves when they go bad. Very common.

The hoses are a few dollars and in stock at any parts store.
