CORVETTE BRAKE ISSUES?

1982 Chevrolet Other

When I took my 1982 Corvette out of storage this spring, the brake pedal went all the way to the floor and I had no brakes. A local repair shop replaced the master brake cylinder. The brakes worked well for about a month and then the following started to happen. When applying the brakes, initially the car would pull to the left, then the brakes would equalize and brake normally, on release of the brake pedal, the car would pull slightly to the right and then equalize out normally. As if the right front caliper was working sluggishly on engaging and disengaging. The shop that replaced my master cylinder suggested I replace the right front caliper, which I did and that made absolutly no difference.

Any suggestions on what to look at to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance.
