Front leaf spring bushings

Hi,
Been searching around but not finding any information on the front leaf spring bushing on my 2000 F250 SD 4X4. Its been pulling to the left for a bit while braking. Took it to a highly trusted mechanic and he replaced calipers and hoses on the front. Made it a little better but it seems that once the brakes heat up some it still pulls to the left the closer you are to getting to a complete stop. He came up with two possibilities after much searching: Steering box or spring bushings.
Anyone else have this diagnosis? If so did you replace the bushings and the problem go away?

Worn out bushings could cause some issues up front because things are moving around. Not exactly sure what the issue could be for you. If you need bushings let me know, I have ones you are looking for and they are a direct replacement.
