Brakes suddenly pull to the left!
On my '05 Escalade, when you're braking, the wheel will suddenly jerk to the left for a half a second, then it will stop pulling. After you come to a complete stop and release the brakes, the wheel will jerk immediately to the right, then stop! I've never had a vehicle to this, so I don't know what to think is the problem! Any ideas?

Could be the wheel sensors

Re: Brakes suddenly pull to the left!
I finally was able to get my truck on a lift to see what was the cause of the pulling and noises I've been hearing;
The drivers side A-arm bolt was VERY loose and the A-arm was sliding around in the mount. I had an alignment done in August, and obviously the shop doesn't know how to use a torque wrench, or any wrench! I tightened it up and took it back to the shop today and had them redo the alignment!
I am obviously NOT happy, since my wife uses this truck most of the times to drive our kids around, so I wrote an email to the corporate regional rep about this issue!
