Will the car pull to the right when braking if the left front caliper is binding in its bore?

Cars & Vehicles
Ford F-150
Dodge Ram

Generally, yes.

The binding caliper causes the pads to rub against the rotor heating the pads and rotor up. Hot pads and rotor provide less braking under equal pressure (when braking) so the right brake works better. The car will pull toward the better brake.
