Sailor, your number 2 response doesn't make sense to me. I don't think he should be hearing a "whoosh" sound when braking, that sounds like a vacuum leak associated with the brake booster and could easily account for an unresponsive pedal.

I agree with him about car pulling while braking, could be the right caliper is not moving as freely as it should and making the left caliper "stronger" as a result. If this were the case it should be pretty evident in the pad wear on the old pads, a partially seized caliper will result in a ramped pad surface, was this the case on any of the old parts?
