Default Brake Pulls

I have 1997 Lexus LS 400. When I apply the brakes car pulls to the left. I just put on new calipers on the front left and right. Put on new pads on the front also. Can anyone tell me what the problem could be? Thanks

Sounds like a sticking piston. Re-bleed the brakes to make sure all air is out of the system.

Why did you put new calipers on is my first question? How do the rotors look?

^Same question, was it fine before, or were the calipers supposed to fix the problem? If the latter then who diagnosed it as calipers? Could be collapsed flexline, stuck abs actuator, bad suspension bushing, etc....

Thanks for replys. The problem was the brake line on the passenger side and the inside sets of pistons on the caliper was stuck. Fluid from the master cylinder was coming to the top of line but, the bottom of the line was block. Again, thanks for replys
