When i brake my car pulls to the left,my caliper on the left seemed to be sticking,so i changed both front calipers,i used the same brake shoes because the were fairly new,but it still pulls to the left,what else could i look for.?

ACTUALLY THE RIGHT BRAKE IS MOST LIKELY THE PROBLEM,AS OVER HEATED BRAKES ON THAT SIDE WILL CAUSE
THE LEFT SIDE TO PULL MORE! (BRAKE BIAS).
SOUNDS CRAZY DON'T IT! SHOULD BE ABLE TO TELL BY JACKING UP FRONT END,
HIT BRKES A COUPLE OF TIMES, THEN TURN EACH WHEEL TO SEE WHICH SIDE IS DRAGGING THE MOST.
you ask me to let you know of the results of my problem last week,I jacked up the truck and had an assistant press the brake 1/4 of the way the left wheel coulstiff dnt be spun by hand ,but i could spin the right one,when the brake was fully applied i couldnt spin either wheel so i let brake off the left wheel was still harder to spin than the right.so i craked the brake lines on the left figuring that it must still have some pressure but there wasnt,so i figured the new caliper may be defective and so i replaced it,but the brakes still pull to the left.this truck has strange bra
ke setup with brake hoses from the rear and front interconnecting with each other plus it has two junctions inthe middle of the truck that have a valve of some kind with bleeder screws.do you know what this is?

i would replace the left brake hose going to that caliper then bleed the brakes again.sounds like the hose has collapsed.
