1988 Buick Reatta 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 41000 miles
When I do a hard stop in traffic - car pulls left hard, then right - it seems to be unstable. It is getting worse over time. Calipers have been cleaned, brake lines replaced, brakes inspected. Mechanic does not get what is going on.
Caused by contaminated linings, misadjusted brakes, a bad wheel cylinder or caliper, dragging brakes on one side or loose wheel bearings. Can also be caused by a mismatch of friction materials side-to-side on the front brakes or differences in rotor thickness, type or condition.

Could it be ABS failure? Have you heard of this happening?
