2000 Chevy Tahoe is braking when I turn the wheel more than 35%. Drives fine when going forward.

Did anyone do brakes on this recently, or at the time this started?

No one did brakes before but we checked both front and back because previously I had started hearing the telltale chirping sound. Front and rear pads were fine but the e-brake was worn down and seamed as though it had been rubbing so we took care of that. This happens when I turn the wheel either way.

I would check and see if somebody put a twist in the brake hose when removing the caliper.
