Best Answer

I am not a mechanic but I have owned a lot of problematic cars. I have come to find out that a car can pull to the right while braking due to various reasons. Such as, a caliper that gets stuck and does not work properly, uneven brake wear--get brakes pads, rotors, calipers checked-- an outter tire rod may be worn--unbalanced or uneven wear on tires--or it could be your alignment.All or one of these can contribute to this. Take it to a mechanic and get it checked to be definitely sure.

Why does car shake when applying brakes?

If the steering wheel shakes, but to car doesn't, when applying brakes - your front rotors are warped (if you have disc brakes)...if you have drum brakes, the drum could be cracked or the pads worn unevenly If the whole car shakes, and the steering wheel only seems to react to that, when applying brakes - see above statement, but apply to the rear end.
