2000 Dakota, RC, 4.7, 5spd . . . . I've replaced pads, rotors, calipers, lines, and master a few years ago to "resolve" the sticking front brakes. I was out driving in the rain yesterday and experience a "strange" braking issue. The driver front wheel would lock under semi heavy braking. All of the wheels appear to brake normally, all though it seems to pull to the right when I'm driving. I'm going to take out once it dries to see if I can replicate it.

Any additional ideas or things I should look at?

Sounds like the rubber brake lines may be collapsing inside. The rubber inside has a tendency to break down and only let fluid flow one way. Replace with a good quality part or you'll be doing it again. Cheap price is not always the best way to go. Ask me how I know!!

When I replaced them 3 years ago, I used the lines purchased from the dealership. I'm not sure where to go regarding the lines if these have failed within that time frame.
