Thanks for the reply. That's pretty poor life if you ask me! The fact that they're non greaseable says alot though. My '91 Dakota with 260,000km were all original, but were greased regularily.

Thanks for your reply. My shifter shows 1,2,D. Has OD & Tow/haul on the end of the selector. I believe its a 5 speed trans as well, but not completely sure.

MDS question

When pulling a trailer in "tow/haul" mode, does the MDS still engage when engine load is low enough? Does the same go for "OD off" mode?

Thanks...

I had my truck at the dealer to have another ignition key cut & programmed today, they disabled the horn sounding when locking the doors for me. They were nice enough to not charge me to do that. :)

I think I'll live with it until the brakes are worn out. No point spending money on different pads/rotors if it'll still squeal. Thanks for the info though! Sounds like a somewhat common issue.

Not everytime I stop, but more often than not. Not sure if spraying brake clean on the rotors & wiping them would help at all or not.
