Tyre tread will affect it going in a straight line when you let go of the steering wheel, Get the calipers checked for sticky pistons too. Have you got any knocking or grinding noises as well?

Normally a severe pull under braking is down to a pad or calliper sticking have a look at your discs and see if one is burnt red

discs look alright, ill strip the calipers and bleed them, i have noticed the steering feels a bit loose on bumps and potholes etc which made me think tension rod but it was alright for a bit after i had the tracking done.

There is no squeaking or grinding not since i dealt with the squeaking from the bushes

They're the ones that come out either side of your steering rack mate. You'll need a ramp to check them.

Why would you bleed the brakes unless you have replaced pipes or burst a pipe

hey im the one asking the questions :))

surely if i remove the calipers to clean and inpect them ill need to bleed the breaks to make sure there is no air in there?
]
Again why would you be removing the callipers??? And no air will get in unless u have lost all brake fluid or replaced pipes.
All you will be doing is removing the wheels and using a flat screwdriver gently lever the pistons in and then see if the pads are free in the calliper as well,if the pistons take a lot of force to go backin then you will need to free them off by carefully lifting the rubber seals off just enough to spray something in there to help free them then press the brake a few times and lever the pistons back. It may take some time lol

Because they could have been removed and not bleed?

Most logical answer as it's not braking

Tapatalk - S3 rooted
but they are braking hence the dive one way if the callipers were not bled there would be no brakes at all no pull no stopping just pedal straight to floor mate :)

Use a fluid that will free of seized parts only no need to grease up after it since the rubber boot will protect it lol
