Roland:

I believe that you have a faulty or misadjusted front brake caliper. Had that same problem when I had my 84 SL.

Go to a good - and I stress, good - mechanic, and ask him to check that out. I doubt its in your wheels. I'm also assuming that your front tires are equalized in pressure.

Let me know.

Also check your tire pressure. I suspect it is more likely a brake caliper piston seizing in the bore. If it has done this for a while, you will see a difference in the pad thickness between the left and right front calipers.
