I just replaced he calipers on mine. It would consistently pull to the left going down the road. When the rotors were cool it wouldn't stick and all would be well. So when I checked them they seemed fine. After they heated a little, the caliper would get sticky
and start the pulling thing. It'* just a thought.

Why did you change the rack? If you had an align problem your tires could be worn unevenly. If you swapped tires back to front and still have the issue it could be rotors or hub related. Possible uneven wear on the brake pads.

I was driving 2 the air & water show in Aug trying 2 find a parking
spot & my car I was trying 2 do a u turn an my car started making
a noise when I made a left turn. I then I tried 2 make another left turn
but was not able 2. The wheel got real hard 2 turn. I had 2 drive 5 mph
& pull with boths hands 2 make a 90 degree left turn. I was downtown
Chicago & had 2 drive home only able 2 make right turns traveling
about 15 miles. The dealer said the rack was damaged & replaced it.
A week later they had 2 replace the one they replaced because,
They said that the one they install was defective.

A Rack could make plausible sense to that. I would check to see where your tires are wearing and i need to know how it rides at lets say 60 compared to small maneuvering. Also if you have stock rims and tires on it. Tell me everything it is doing or still doing, i will help you out.
