For the third time, bleeding them has nothing to do with this. If you didn't bleed them correctly you would have NO brakes.

^^^Then the front right sounds like a good place to start looking for problems.

That's a judgement call. My judgement tells me not to drive when I am unsure of my brakes because of, you know, the other people on the road...

Clicking noise sounds like pads arn't seated properly. Did you grease the backplates when installing them?

I can't say I've had the same problem but I have been in a truck with a missing left front brake and it exhibited the same kind of pulling to one side symptoms. I don't want to say your brake is seized as it was just rebuilt, but that's the first place I'd look as it's clearly got nothing to do with the lines or fluid delivery as stated by many here, and there's not much else to check.

Start simple, take off the calipers and just try to move each piston by hand. It should be tricky but it will move if you give it a good squeeze. You'll be able to tell if it's seized. I had to rebuild an old caliper i ordered and it took every ounce or force i possessed plus a little leverage to free those sticky pistons.


Edit: Might as well check the pads too. Maybe one is backwards, lol. never know

I greased the back of the pads, was I supposed to grease the pins and the holes the pads slide into? Sorry it's my first time doing this with brembos

*update*

Took it for a spin, it brakes beautiful and solid at normal speeds, I pulled into my driveway and I notice the front pads have a ill play back and forth. Anyone have a pic the proper wy the retiming clip should be installed?

It just so happens my retainer clips for the front were installed backwards (by me ) and I put them in the right way. Now the front pads have spring tension like the rear which I put in properly. Could that have caused my original problem?

LOL, I try not to flame people but, come on man... Do the brakes work properly now that you fixed it? Then yes, that was the problem. Do they still suck? Then no, it didn't cause the problem.

The retainers fixed the clicking noise when I tap my brakes when I'm in stop and go traffic, but the original problem is still there. I veer to the left slightly whn I slam my brakes at 70+mph, but at lower speeds its normal and te brakes bite beautiful

Im willing to bet on that tire. I had the same issues. Got my new tires and BAM brakes perfectly straight. Although mine was more of a pull and not a "kick out" you describing. Thats just my experience tho.

Driving it again today, it's more a pull. Yesterday it was the first time it happened so I probably made it seem worse than it is, and the way it veers is in the direction where the tire is eaten in the inner wall of the rear left tire. Other than that the braking is awesome thank god

I really hope it's the tire, but at the same time I don't want to ignore other possible causes

Tire looked worn out so maybe it's time to replace it regardless. That will eliminate it being the tire. Also you mentioned it only happening under heavy breaking from higher speeds? Possibly a driver error and you are subconsciously pulling the wheel? I've done that on the track once or twice. Just a thought.

Check the calipers or move that wheel around and see if the pull changes direction.

For testing purposes, you could simply swap the wheel with the worn out tire to a different position on the car and see if the braking behavior changes. If it does change, you know the tire is at fault. Regardless I would recommend that you get new tires because that tire doesn't have long before it is down to steel belts on the inside shoulder.

You sure it's not the highway road crown that causing this pull? Roads are rarely flat, have unseen ruts, and are crowned in the middle. Addtionally, full threshold braking at 70+mph often results in a bit of a darting behavior, some cars worse than other.
