well the other day i put in some new front springs as well as bendix ultimate brake pads. i noticed that my calipers were very tight the left one a lot more than the right. but eventually got the pads in and away i went. today while driving i noticed the car was diving sharply to the right under brakes so i started to think what could be causing this.
Could it be that the guides and piston on the left caliper are very tight and causing the left caliper to not do much in comparison to the right?
Or could there be some other thing causing it that i have over looked?

you need to lube the slides on the calipers,would be beneficial to do a rebuild i think ford sells a rebuild/re-seal kit.
