Have a rubbing noise that changes with speed, also a little whobble in the steering wheel only when braking, as the car pulls right. Car is pulling fairly hard right when braking.

Haven't jacked her up and inspected front suspension, but I suspect control arm bushings - they're original on 210k miles......possibly a bad brake caliper.

Tie rod ends are newer

Thoughts on other likely culprits?

Possibly Brake rotor warpage and uneven brake pad thickness. Probably a good idea to check both front bearings as well, would not suprise me if they need to be replaced with the mileage given.

The caliper pistons as you mentioned can also hang up depending on wear and age. You might consider doing a brake fluid flush while your in there. B
