Wench Check you caliper....maybe locked up

HarryOh Same thing happen to me a couple months ago when I changed my pads and rotors. I took then back off, cleaned everything, re-bled the lines, still pulled to the left when I applied the brakes. So I replaced the right caliper with a new one, bled it, and it fixed the problem. They worked fine after that.
Only thing I can think I did was I must of damaged the piston when I compressed it back in with the C-clamp.

i just had this problem and replaced both calipers. im pretty sure that the stock calipers come with a high strength plastic piston that warps over time due to heat stress. if i pushed on the breaks the right side would lock up. there wasnt much of a warning that there was a problem. one day its fine and the next the right brake is locking up.

Geno There is a special grease for the bolts/pins the calipers "float" on.
Maybe when you take back apart you lube those up real good. Just an idea. Good luck.

jgorm The force on each pad is the same because they are in the same hydraulic loop. It might be the alignment, or maybe one pad is stickier than the rest. Have to done the pad bedding procedure?
