91-350 SDL Brake Question

I have replaced my front rotors and pads, now I have a serious pull to the left that didn't exist previously. When I spin the rotor is appears to get hung up like the rotor is warped, except the rotor was brand new. So I guess it is possible that I had a bad rotor from the mfct. but am curious if any knows of any other problems that might cause this behavior?

Might be that the rotor isn't sitting properly on the hub. Did you clean the hub surface that the rotor bolts to? Maybe the hub isn't set properly on the spindle.

Are wheel bearing races used on this car?

Does the 91 350 SDL have wheel bearing races or do the bearing reside directly on the spindle? I ordered a bearing kit today from the local Benz dealer but the parts person said they didn't list a race for it. Therefore he thought it didn't take them.
