I've noticed recently that my spider would pull to the left if I got hard on the brakes, more specifically when pulling up to a red light I'd feel that extra drag while my foot was on the pedal, and when I'd put on more pedal pressure, say at 5-7 mph, it would pull left.
So I pulled the wheels and looked at the pads, and they have many miles left. The rotors have no grooves, and any of the four look like the rest. Only 8000 miles on them. At speed, if I'd get on it, I'd feel the pull, but nothing unsafe. And only when approaching a stop does it become a surprise. Since I don't drive it often I'm not worried as it's such a small pull at any real speed. I don't feel unsafe, But......
I washed it yesterday and noticed that the left front wheel was much dirtier than the others, with the left rear next dirtiest. Right side minimal dirt. So that raises the question of why.
Is there something about these spiders brakes as a whole that have this problem? Or.....
Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to have some mechanic 'find' an issue that I might be able to correct. And next weekend we are going to an Alfa event in the Orlando area and want to have no issues.
Thanks in advance for the help. Please......
