It sometimes pulls to the left when braking with a decent amount of pressure. I don’t drive the vehicle but spouse complains about lack of stopping power. I’m wondering if it’s a hanging caliper, bad wheel hub, faulty brake hose or something else.
Had similar pulling issue in 2018 (I don’t remember which direction it pulled to) and took it to mechanic. Had the front left and right brakes replaced including: calipers, rotors, and pads. He also replaced front passenger wheel bearing & hub assembly at the same time. If memory serves correctly the mechanic blamed the car pulling during braking on the bad hub, which he then said ruined the brakes…
I need the car fixed by this weekend and would prefer to take it on myself but just not sure where to start. I don’t want order new caliper(s) if its something else. Also of note, both Power Stop calipers were new in 2018 and came with a nice gray finish. The front right caliper still looks nice and clean, but the front left (the side the car now pulls to) is either very rusted or just really dirty compared to the other caliper.
