Brake Calipers PLEASE HELP

i'm a noob and i need to get new Brake Calipers... this is the deal..
when i stop my ef, my stearing wheel and wheels and car turns slightly to the right. i asked around and people said that i need new  Brake Calipers. I have a 89 sedan and i think they are the orginal ones that came with the car. I seen the red Brake Calipers on other efs on this site and thats what i want, they look real cool! so i really don't know what Brake Calipers are?? Are they the things that i was explaining? The red things that i see in the back of the rims??? mostly in the front end of the car..? And if thats what they are i want them in red and some info on them like... how much they are and how do they help the car vrs. the rusty ones that i have now or if you guys know somthing better than the red ones feel free to let me know..i'm open for anything...  thanx!

the red calipers that you are speaking about are probably just regular ones painted red. if your car pulls to the right the means that your driver side brakes are not cutting it. one thing that i noticed with these cars is that the brake lines leak i've have changed about 5 already. maybe that could be your problem do you notice tiny puddles under your wheels?

I don't think that the calipers would make your car pull to one side.

Have you had a wheel alignment recently? Changed your brake shoes/pads? Any suspension mods done?

I did not see any puddles under the car at all so its not a brake line. but thanks for the pic... its a big help, now i know what im looking at... i did not have any  suspension mods done, and im gonna get a wheel alignment  tomorrow  but first i got to get 2 outer tire rods the guy told me that mine are no good and i also got my wheels bananced today and that was a big help also.. i'll let u know what happens tomorrow... please let me know about those red calipers if u guys know any info on them.. thanx

The colour of the caliper has nothing to do with what kind of caliper it is.
