Vehicle Drifts/Pulls to One Side When Brakes Are Applied on Dodge Ram 3500

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Some models could have a severe drift or pull to one side when the brakes were applied. If this is not caused by a dragging brake caliper, there is a service bulletin describing the step-by-step diagnosis and many possible solutions. Our technicians note the most common solutions are performing a four wheel alignment, checking torque on suspension components, installing shims between the wheels and hubs, and replacing the suspension arms.

Front brakes surge have not found the problem!
Hit brake and it fill like you step on a brick or fells like you are on ice some times pull to right but not all the time. I can not see a brake problem after taking apart wheels,
