heated up my brakes to the point of melting the abs sensors. replaced pads and bleed system. Now when i apply brakes the steering kicks back. any ideas, could the heating or insufficient bleeding process be the blame? Thank you.

It could also be a brake not releasing (a sticky caliper if disc brakes, or the equivalent for drum brakes), which would make it pull all the time to one side but feel like it's pulling to the other side when the brakes are applied by comparison to the new "normal."

One or both of your discs/drums could be "glazed" from the heat and in spite of having new pads, the braking is uneven.

When you say "steering kicks back" do you mean it pulls to the left or right when brakes are applied?
