    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.

    BRAKE PULL ON 48STUDE CHAMPION

    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
