Always had quite a lot of travel in the brake pedal so recently replaced the rear shoes. This seemed to make things much better

Was out for a run in the sun yesterday when the brake pedal became very firm with very little travel and a huge pull to left when applied.

With more pressure applied n/s front would lock up completely. Clearly something has affected the brake balance fairly majorly

I was planning on taking the car to our agm tomorrow so only have tonight to sort it.

Can anyone give me any suggestions as to where to start

I'm with Roger on his logic but can't think how changing the rear shoes would affect the front brakes

I also agree with Stuart that a seized o/s calliper would explain the results but what would cause a calliper to seize that had been performing perfectly?
