Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.

I would check the axle for being bent or warped.

Thanks, Ron

um... it has a cv joint which is obviously not warped...

I think that it is the brake.. but I am not sure as to why only one would bind... the caliper is brand new as is the bearing assembly... the only two friction point connected to the wheel.. the cv joint is in good shape..

It also has an axle that CAN be bent or warped if the car hit something on the undercarriage. Very possible, it happened to my Honda. I never hit anything, but it turned out another family member did and never told me about it.

Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
