Ram 1500 brake pads
 
Hey guys,can anyone give me some tips on changing brake pads on a 2005 Ram 1500 4.7 please? I need to do front and rear. Thanks!

Hey there! Thanks for that.....ceramics on the front and semi-metallic on the back. Was a bit scary doing it myself as the front calipers took a bit of jiggling to get off,and I was real careful compressing the pistons back in. Took it real slow with a C-clamp,but once I had done the first one and got it back on,the rest was a cinch! Dont do any hauling or towing apart from winter firewood,so didn't need special pads. The four wheels cost 70$,which was great. Nice to hear from you.......thanks!
