    Have you considered , having a mechanic test drive the Ramcharger first and get his opinion before investing a small fortune in a upgrade that may not be necessary ? Even though you've replaced everything there may be a problem with the present brake system that you have overlooked . There are several things you can do . Steel braided brake hoses are always a plus . Brake pads : Stock replacement or performance . I have a Chrysler 300 SRT8 that has the Brembo brake system on it . The brake system is awesome . The problem that I had with it was "brake dust" . I could wash the car and wheels , one day later the wheels are already turning black from the Brembo brake pads .

    I decided to change them out for a set of aftermarket pads that are suppose to produce minimal amount of dust . Well the aftermarket pads have fixed that problem but what a difference in braking . The Brembos would stop on a dime and give ya change back where as the aftermarkets work fine but the aggressiveness just isn't there . It would be my decision to try a different pad like EBC first and maybe even consider a upgrade to stainless steel brake hoses also before doing a complete system upgrade . The factory system should work well enough to handle stopping the Ramcharger . If you still want to upgrade check out SSBC Brakes . I checked them out and they say they have a drum to disc conversion for '94 and up . I don't see why that system won't work for ya . They may have a system available for your '93 that just isn't listed . But really get a honest opinion from a mechanic before proceeding . Let me know how you make out . Tom

    URGENT BRAKING NEEDS!!! Hi folks.....I have a need and already posted my problem (I can't believe I'm the only one) I have a 1/2 ton 5.2 93 Ramcharger LE.....I need bigger rotors & better calipers...Any ideas along this line? The reason is simple, my Ramcharger is harder to stop than I believe is safe. I've gone completely thru the entire brake system....I've replaced everything with new parts including master cylinder and power brake unit, also flushed system. Whats out there for a major upgrade on the disc end of this stock system??? 1 problem I may have overlooked....I replaced my rotor with a non drilled or vented rotor.....I did replace pads with top of the line.... HELP! Any ideas you have, let me know about it.....PLEASE! Thanks Folks! Allen from the Central Coast of Calif.
