Jeep pulls to the right sometime

Olls to the right sometimes
Anybody else have this problem 2013 jk unlimited Sahara I'll be driving along fine and all of the sudden the jeep wants to go right without putting the brakes on. Seems to do it more when I am stop and going not so much on the open road. Brakes seem to pull too.. Think it could be a brake caliper sticking ???
Any other ideas from the crew????
My jeep has gremlins !!!!! good news is I have an extended warranty

That's usually what happens when you have a caliper that's sticking.

That's kind f what I think it is too, it only happens once and a while so I was thinking it could be something else.

Would it be ok to just replace the piston and seal or is that being penny wise and pound foolish??>

When the calipers start to act that way I always replace the caliper. I also replace them in pairs. In my experience with JK's once one caliper starts to hang up the others seem to follow. Mine did the same thing. First I replaced the fronts when one failed. Within a month a rear caliper failed, started sticking, and I replaced both rears. I haven't had any problems since. Since the rear pads were more than 1/2 way I replaced them at the same time. I've never had any caliper problems on any of my other vehicles, only the JK.
