Brake Pull Issue

97' NAS D90-
When applying the brakes moderately hard the D90 pulls hard to the left. Here is what I have done so far. I have installed a new brake master cylinder, proportioning valve, both brand new front calipers and steel braided lines and brake pads. When I installed a new set of brake pads it seemed to slightly help but still pulls hard left. I have also used a brake hose clamp to eliminate the rear brakes to make sure the problem was coming from the front. This did not change anything. Any suggestions?

Since you have eliminated the calipers as a potential source of the problem I wonder about the brake lines. Get some fresh fluid, and see if you can flush the rt side. Wondering if there is dirt in the lines.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.

Did it pull before you started replacing stuff? Where did you get the calipers from? AB? There's a chance you've got a bum caliper. As suggested, check the rears, then check the fronts. Make sure the calipers retract easily.
