2004 Buick LeSabre Custom 6 Cyl 3.80L

Brakes

Car pulls to left when braking

When braking car pulls hard to left. Calipers checked out and are working fine. Replaced left front control arm.
Mechanic mentioned possibility of the dividing block being bad, but he could not check this out. Car has ABS.
Have also replaced front struts. When braking easily car doesn't pull. When I have to brake fast car pulls hard.

Replace the brake fluid in the system ,and replace both of the front hydraulic brake hoses - to each of the front calipers.

Try these on-line parts resources; www.autopartsanything.com; www.partsgeek.com; www.Rockauto.com, www.stockwiseauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the replacement front brake hoses from around $8.00 each for your v ehicle.

Front brake hose = RAYBESTOS part #BH381383 or it's equivalent

Be sure to also check the front brake caliper, on the left side, for corrosion or a sticking piston. You cannot rule this out as a possibility yet.
If the caliper piston is siezed or sticking, then replace both of the front calipers - same potential on-line resources.
