It would certainly seem to be brake related, but here is a more far-fetched 
suggestion: a broken rear spring. This will cause asymmetric wheel loading, 
which can make the car pull hard to one side. You would probably notice 
asymmetric cornering response as well, though. Curiously, it doesnâ??t seem to 
affect the ride much.
