TR2/3/3A Left turn braking problem [TR3]

Here's a new one, when I am in a hard left turn sometimes it feels as though I am braking. We have examined the tire and wheel well and see no evidence of any rubbing.

When I am in a left turn and braking, it is even worse, it seems to pull me harder to the left.

Anyone with a similar problem or advise?

Perhaps the problem are loose wheel bearings and the rotor kicks to one side on a strong turn or possibly the front end alignment is not balanced letting one of the wheels rub. The tie rod end assemblies should be the same from end to end. You could have one long and one short and still be aligned for straight driving, but could not have the proper turning radius.

When you replace your brake hoses, re-do the wheelbearings too,sp is onto this one I think. But I will bet there is something getting hot and holding brake pressure(bad hose)too.
