My 240ZT pulls slightly to the left under braking. It did it when I bought the car. It did it when the brakes pads were changed and the rotors were cut and now it is still doing it with new Wilwood rotors, Calipers and brake pads. It does not really pull under hard braking as much as it does under medium braking. It is more annoying than anything else as it can easily be controlled with a tight grip on the steering wheel. But something must be not quite right. My frame rails are solid and my springs and struts have only a couple of thousand miles on them. Any thoughts guys?

i think i saw a kit or something for sale that fixes that...
perhaps at that new "Strictly Z"
that was what i understood it to do...

it looks like/is a tension compression rod kit
theres a pic of that kit in MSA... and the one i saw online to repair that braking problem.. looks like that kit.

anyways... i'm probably wrong.. seeing as how i'm still learning all this stuff myself...
but.. like i said.. it was my understanding.

good luck...
(mine does that too.. and i want it fixed)

Make sure your tension rod bushings are tight. I don't think think the performance tension rod (cone-shaped) kit will help a pre-existing hard pull. Could be the tires. Switch the fronts and see if it makes a difference. Get a good alignment. Bleed the lines again. Check the pads to make sure they are the same. Sounds obvious, but I got a brake job once and the pad material on one side was visibly a different colour than the other. Went back and made the shop put on new pads and the pull went away. Probably have tried all of this, but just my .02.

My 77 Pulled to the left as well. I put the stainless steel brake lines from Motorsport Auto on and I have never had the problem again. I think its has somthing to do with the amount of pressure put out by the master cyl. The steel lines dont seem to flex to the amount of pressure like the rubber does. I do get a much better feel from the pedals as well.
