Unhappy ABS Problem?

Hello all, I have a 1989 Supra non-turbo of which I'm the original owner. The
car all of a sudden started to pull violently to the left when the brake pedal
is pressed at speeds of 80mph and above. It does not do this at normal
speeds, only when i drive fast and suddenly press on the brake pedal. The
best way I can describe the symptoms is that it has a glazing feeling to the
brakes, almost as if the rotors were not gripping the brake pads. The only
way to stop it is to pump the brake pedal repeatedly until speeds reach
below 80mph. To correct this problem I've done the following but still the
problem persists.
1. Replaced front ABS Sensors (2) Replaced ABS computer with a used
one (3) Replaced brake lines (4) Replaced front rotors, brake pads and

In an attempt to isolate the problem, I disconnected the ABS computer and
drove the car and it stopped just fine, without pulling to the left as before.
Not sure what the problem could be so any help you guys could provide
would be appreciated. Needless to say, my local Toyota dealership has no
clue as to the problem, nor has any of the many mechanics that I've taken
it to for diagnosis. Again, it brakes fine with ABS disconnected, and only
happens at speeds of 80mph and above.
