2004 Volvo with a jerk to the right when braking.

Asked by Jan 25, 2014 at 03:21 PM about the 2004 Volvo V70 2.4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced both calipers, brake hoses, tie rod end on passenger side, and it still jerks to the right when braking. Im now going to start looking at the bushings unless there is another suggestion. I have also had both struts replaced. I really have no other direction to look but the bushings at this point.

Usually 98% of the time if your car pulls hard right while braking you have a bad sticking caliper....the other 2% it is caused by (broken or bent control arm or in rare cases extremely worn tie rods or ball joints or even a bent subframe) but usually in these cases the car will show other symptoms so it's most likely a bad front caliper. When changing your pads did you check the pad wear if one side wore less than the other? I would change the caliper that had the less wear assuming that it is not working as well.

But you said you replaced the calipers, so maybe a brake booster issue.

why would that cause it to jerk to one side or the other?
