sticking calipers could cause this. if your vehicle pulls to one side when you apply your brakes then it genereally means that the other side is not working correctly. excessive brakeing can cause this to. if you travel down alot of hills then you have to apply your brakes alot more. or if you are pulling anything. your front brakes do about 80 percent of the brakeing and the rear do about 20 percent. make sure your rear is adjusted properly. when you replace the front pads make sure to grease the slides. if you experence any vibration when brakeing the you need to replace the rotors as well. make sure you tightened your vehicle lug nut to the proper specification (around 100 ft. lbs.)

Do you have to replace the back brake shoes if you change front pads?

No. You will only need to replace the brake shoes if they are worn down. Generally the front brakes do 70% of braking leaving the rear with 30%, which will cause the front pads to wear first. What is important however is that you replace either front brakes or rear brakes as a set. i.e. if you're replacing the front brakes do the right and left side.
