this genereally means that the left front caliper is siezed. if it pulls to the right then your right side is working fine, its the left you need to worry about. as a rule when it comes to brakes, what you do to one side you do to the other. so if you replace the left caliper, then i would suggest to do both of them. and don't forget to bleed the brakes.

If you are referring to the parking brake...they are suppose to, but both,the left and the right side should pull down. The adjuster inside the drum my have stuck and needs some lube on the threads. Check the brake shoes on the rear.If they are still in spec tighen the side that dont pull down because it is not working correctly. If they are pulling down using the foot brake loosen the side that is pulling down, you should not notice the pull down when using the foot brake.
