    Just put new pads and rotors on. It pulls to the right under braking.

    Where should I start? The left caliper seems to work but I need to jack it up and verify though.

    The right doesn't seem to drag either. Going to do inner and outer tie rods next weekend, along with lower ball joints and upper control arms. Then take it in for an alignment. Hopefully tighten up the front suspension a bit doing that.

    My guess is alignment. Just get under there and make sure everything is tightened down.

    Did you do anything with a mallet/hammer while doing the brakes that might have pushed something out?

    Start with confirming caliper pistons move freely, as well as the caliper slides not being frozen. Then check for a collapsed brake hose.

    Sidenote: If those front end parts arent actually bad, theres going to be no gain in replacing them other than having a lighter wallet.

    The other things are unrelated to the brakes. I'm dong the suspension stuff because it's original with 220k mIles lol.

    I'll pull it apart this weekend and do some more investigating. I was also thinking the brake line between the caliper and the hard line potentially. I'll let you guys know what I discover.

    I went 200k on my integra before I did the suspension. It will feel like a new car. Until something else breaks and reminds you its not.
