when you release the brakes, does it correct itself to the left?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes it would correct itself.

Expert:  Eric replied 4 years ago.

Usually this is due to worn or missing control arm bushing that allows movement in the whole spindle when braking, and when you release the brake the spindle moves back

thoroughly check the control arm bushings on both sides for being torn, missing, shrinkage allowing movement of the control arm.
