Steering to the right when breaking

Sometimes, my car pulls to the right under braking. All brakes are in good condition, the brake-test-machine shows perfect balance. Would it be possible this is caused by a miss-aligned steering-house? The tracking is OK, but the arm of the steeringhouse is not in the middle when the car is driving in a straight line. Could this be the problem?

You might have a sticking caliper or bad brake hoses. It is one of the two. Check if you have the rubber hoses that they are not sort of deformed. Check also the your busings etc..

It was the BIGGEST and Easiest improvement that I have even done to any car. Major brake pedal now and gives you a bit more confidence in the late braking corners

When your brake, the soft brake line wil "inflate" and "absorb" the pressure. And the caliper will not work as expected. One remedy only: new brake lines.

That's why I'm asking. All the obvious has been taken care of. The weird thing is that the inbalance also doesn't show up on the brake-o-meter (don't know the term). Left and right brakes are in perfect balance on the tester.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
