On any dual master cylinder system I've ever seen, the front brakes are served by one line coming directly from the cylinder that is teed off downline to serve each front brake. Therefore, if the master cylinder is not behaving properly, both front brakes would be equally affected (no pulling). It's my understanding that pressure bleeding is a more effective way to rout out stubborn air pockets in an ABS braking system. You have 16 year-old brake hoses; it's time for their retirement party in any event. A bad hose can collapse internally when not under pressure and act as a check valve, slowing the return of brake fluid towards the master cylinder and delaying the release of the caliper (Probably not your problem, but...).
