Ok, this either brake hoses that have collapsed and causing it to pull on braking or worn control arm bushings. I more suspect the brake hoses, but check the control arm bushings for being shrunk and allowing movement of the control arm as well as missing chunks of of the bushings and replace as needed. If ok as I suspect, replace your front brake hoses

You would need 4 brake pressure gauges that go up to 2500 psi to test
