Default brake problem on my DD

while driving hear latly i pull to the left real bad while breaking. and then today my right front started smoking real bad behind the wheel in the break area. im thinking its pulling left while breaking because the right isnt catching. and im thinking its pulling right while not breaking because my callipers are stuck. any suggestions?

deff get new break lines
my dads 73 nova had this problem. it was pulling to one side while breaking, replaced one and it was still pulling, so replaced both and it fixed the problem
just buy both front break lines and replace them
could possibly be a clog
and make sure you bleed the breaks real good afterwards
