WHEN BRAKING NORMALY CAR DOES FINE EXCEPT FOR AN OCCASION SQUEAL,BUT UNDER HARD BRAKING CAR PULLS RIGHT AND THEN LEFT. I HAVE CORRECTED THE TIRE PRESSURES. ADJUSTED THE BRAKES TWICE, ADJUSTED STEERING BOX ANDSHOCK. FRONTEND COMPONENTS ARE ALL TIGHT. BRAKES HAVE ABOUT 3000 MILES. CAR DID SET FOR QUITE A WHILE AFTER NEW BRAKES, WHEEL CYL. MASTERCYL. AND NEW BRAKE LINES AND HOSES. I AM CONSIDERING NEW BRAKE SHOES AND TURNING OR REPLACING DRUMS. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS CHAMP:D

My first guess is flexible brake lines to the front wheels need to be replaced. I would also pull the wheels to make sure that the wheel cylinders are okay and that there is not something on the linings. I noticed that you state; new brake hoses. I would not think that you need to replace the brake linings. Maybe just clean up with Brake Clean if needed. Also, it would be a good idea to flush and bleed the brake system.
