Default '93 C1500 Brakes pulling left

I have a '93 Chevy C1500 2wd. I just put new calipers and rotors on the front, and the pads are about 1.5 months old. Whenever I press on the brakes and my hands are not on the steering wheel, the truck will pull to the left. Sometimes it will pull hard left, and other times it will pull, but not extremely bad. What could the problem be?

Foot Notes: When brakes are applied, truck pulls left.

the right side caliper either has air, or it's sticking. on a side note if your replacing rotors always put new pads on as well.

The caliper is new, I sanded down where the caliper slides on the spindle area, and I greased it. I bled the brakes twice. It was not pulling before, and I put new pads on, and it started pulling, so I replaced both calipers and the rotors, and it is still doing it.

check the brake flex hoses to calipers, where the steel bracket goes around the line and hold it to the upper controll arm they start to rust and pinch off the line affecting brake pressure to the calipers, pry bracket back to unpinch the line thats the problem most of the time
