    It could be that the left caliper is frozen and only the right caliper is grabbing and causing it to pull to the right, I have the same truck and every time I change the brake pads I have to pull the slide pins in the caliper and relube them because they are frozen in place

    a pontiac i had kept the brakes on side pulling the car. auto parts guy said replace the rubber brake line as sometimes they collapse inside. fixed my car.
