Q: Front brake on left side works harder and pulls to the left during hard braking. on 1997 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup

I have change both calipers and changed the fluid. When changing the fluid, it appeared more pressure was needed to push the fluid to the right side caliper. Is something in the anti braking system that could be causing this?

Replace both flex hoses!! Or at least the RIGHT side hose!! The hose can collasp inside then the fluid cannot return to the master cylinder.
This overheats the RIGHT side brakes,,, that in turn makes it pull to the left because the cooler brakes are more efficient.
Thank you all so much. I changed both lines and the brakes respond and release with no pulling. thanks again for the great advise
