before you do that i would re grease the slides as they are common for sticking on e series falcons and that could be why your car is pulling. it happened on my eb. also if the slides are really dry you will probably notice that the pads on one side are worn more than the other.


You beat me too it!
Could also be a sticky caliper piston on one side. Same symptoms and pads will also wear only on one side. This happened in my EA. Calipers had to be re-kitted.

sorry mad max. god knows how many times i have had headaches like that with my car. i ended up putting a calliper kit in and no more pulling or eneven brake pad wear. and since i put slotted rotors i dont get them warping anymore too when i had to machine the stock ones every few months.
