You tried to see if it is just gunked up?
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

If the brake's hanging to one side, first check to make sure the wheel is still centered. If it happened suddenly, you might check to make sure the spring didn't pop out of the retaining holes on the frame and brake arm. Also that nothing happened to the cable that might have tweaked it. After that, try the standard centering procedure. But if a spring is actually damaged, you can sometime bend them back into shape, but it's hard.
