Another thing that is important on all trucks,especially 94+Rams is adjusting the rear brakes.I did mine every oil change and the pedal would be much firmer and the rear brakes work as designed that way.If you let them get out of adjustment the fronts do all the work,leading to rapid front pad wear,warped rotors,and white nuckle stops when the fronts lock and the rears keep going when you have a tongue heavy trailer,or a big load in the bed.I had 62 on mine when i sold it and i had just replaced the original pads in front,even though they had 1/4 left on them.I ddint want to sell it needing brakes.Every time i adjusted them,i got at least 7-15 clicks in only 3000 miles of driving,the parking brake works better too after an adjustment.
