  1. New brake pads--grabbing but only in the driveway

    2015 Dodge Ram Forum
    I just replaced rear pads on my 1500 4x4. No squeeking while driving or braking. They feel great. But when I stopped in my driveway and then went to pull forward, they grabbed a bit before releasing. This is repeating almost every time with a small rubbing sound. Once it releases, it feels...
  2. Fingers Crossed...Brake Squeal Resolved

    2019 Dodge Ram Forum
    I think (praying and crossing fingers) that the brake squeal on my truck has been resolved, once and for all, after 4 times to the dealer. I had the same brake squealing that A LOT of people have been complaining about. Typically happened with light press of the brake going between 45-70 mph...
  3. Brake Surge Issues

    2012 Dodge Ram Forum
    Brakes are surging with light brake pressure. Changed rotors=NO JOY. Worse when going down steep incline. No steering wheel shake, so assuming this is a rear brake issue. Have been checking online and reading about similar issues in dodge vehicles where a rear wheel anti-lock brake "dump...

    Electrical

    In adding the Body Guard bumpers (http://www.bodyguardbumpers.com/) and all the necessary tools to facilitate the mobile Exhaust shop in the bed Big Brake upgrade was definitely up for consideration. With nearly 600 lbs of tools in the bed the brake feel was okay at best and while stock felt...

    5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    Hello! So a little while ago I did a brake job on my 2008 1500 Quad Cab Hemi. There is a whistling noise that I hear pretty clearly around 20-40+ miles per hour. At first I thought maybe the new pads and rotors were just breaking in, but it's been going on for 2 months now. This noise may have...

    When I painted my calipers, there was AALLOOTTT of dust on it, I couldn't even get it all off so I just painted over it. (yeah thats dumb, but it was either that, not painting at all, or getting new ones). I just assumed it was from years of not be cleaned or maintained. But now that I got a...

    Custom Dodge Ram Interior and Exterior Lighting
    Just wondering if anyone has taken the existing LEDs out of the brake light housing and placed them into another direct replacement housing. If so, wondering if there is anything I should know or is it just that easy?
  19. Replacing Brake Booster w/ MC

    LD RAM - General Discussion
    I've never replaced a brake booster or a master cylinder before so I need a little assistance. I've looked around and I can't find an answer for exactly what I need to know. I see that when you replace just the MC, you should do a bench bleed. I can find articles and videos showing me how to do...
