Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 9 months ago.

hey how are you

1- the calipers are usually the problem , as long as the brake proportion valve (BPMV) is applying the same pressure on both sides , then you have to look into suspension causing this .but most likely that valve is applying more pressure on one side than the other ,have you changed that valve

I sent you a diagram showing the valve location ,please press on blue link to open the diagram

2- lower ball joints,strut mount , sway bar links ,has any been checked ?

Please let me know

Thank You
