under heaving braking the car pulls to the left. iv noticed this happening after iv had the rear brake pipes replaced. now there is no leaks on the pipes but i do know the mechanic did a gravity bleed on the rears. if there was some air still in the rears would it cause such a pull? i thought pulling when braking would be caused by the fronts? but since this was not happening since the rear pipes were done it seems like a bit of a coincidence?

Gravity bleed is easy just open the caliper bleeder nipple attach a hose and let it drain fluid out. It usually works well although on my celica iv still got a long pedal travel so its still gonna need a rebleed 2 man method job

Use your pressure bleeder, there is a danger that while someone is pressing on the brake pedal that the seals CAN get damaged as they pass the openings.
