Both vehicles front & rear brakes should be the same when it comes to taking them off & putting them back on

The actual brake shoes & drums on the 3/4 ton van may be larger in size then the 1/2 ton truck

Rwal was standard in 96. Brake and abs lights on? Do you have a pedal or does it go to the floor? This is pic of the rear brake line next to the gas tank. This is what rust can do.

Front breaks work fine no leaks at all.

I had a 1990 Ram van B1500 that I had rear brake problems on. There is a proportioning valve, mine was mounted about the center of the van between front and rear axles in the middle. I stopped at a known repair shop and complained about it on the way to work one morning. They said they bled the brakes but the problem still was there.

I ended up bleeding the brakes myself with help from a friend. I was getting very little from the rears until I stood on the brake pedal and felt something give. I assume it was the proportioning valve that was stuck. After the "give" I got good pressure from bleeding the rears and no more problem.


Above is a diagram of the 2001 1500 system. It shows a combination valve and hydraulic control unit controlling the rear brakes, you should have something similar to this, maybe not exactly but close. You might try to bleed the rear brakes and see how good the flow is from the bleeders. If you do not get any flow or very little I would look for one of these units.

Well bought all new brakes didn't install cleaned all parts off there was a few bent clips springs. Replaced all that stuff. Blead all 4 corners. Found out it doesn't have rail. Still no real luck good pressure through lines. But the brakes kinda pulse then let go at the back. I have no idea.

Is your abs and brake light on? May try disconnecting the abs sensor on the rear. It sounds like the abs system thinks it's locked so cuts pressure to the rear.
