Car pulls to the right under hard braking

My car pulls to the right under hard braking. I can manage it with a little correction through the steering wheel, but it's not confidence inspiring.

My brake setup is pretty basic, Ferodo DS 1.11 brake pads and Brembo HC disks at the front with braided brake lines. The rear is stock. I replaced the left rear caliper a while ago. All the lines are stock, and ABS is present and functional.

Who can give me some guidance as to where to look, my first thought was to replace the 3 remaing calipers, but there probably is an easier and cheaper way to solve this right?

True, in my project page, that is what it shows, but as the alligner was setting the toe, it changes constantly, and at the moment of the picture, the difference was the most extreme. But there is a difference in the camber, for sure.
I didn't get the car corner weighed.

Don't really know what you mean with loose under braking, but it's pulling to the right, and I have to correct of with the steering wheel.
Left hand rear caliper.

Check that the pip on the back of the pad is correctly located in the slot on the piston, as otherwise the pad will sit at an angle to the disc, and not make a proper even contact.

Been there, got the T shirt.

Check the slider pins are free to move on the fronts.

I checked both suggestions. Spider pins were moving freely, regreased them. And the brake pads are in the right position in the rear. We'll see how it goes at Assen next Saturday.
