Take your tire off, unbolt your caliper which is holding you pads to the rotor, and then just take a flat head screw driver and lightly take the pads out of the clips but if your replacing the pads its always a good idea to replace the clips.

Feels like rear end in bouncing or shutter when braking only thru 25 to 20 mph do not feel anything in the brake pedal. only for that 5mph. 2004 Dodge ram 4x4 short wheel base

check brake pads /shoes for lining thickness if drums check for ovality in the drums surface or disc condition
check rear end suspension rubbers and shockys.
check for correct operation of the brake portioning valve as the condition may be from the rear wheels locking up
if it has ABS braking it may be the braking action , a combination of the items to be checked that is causing the problem

Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.

Just changed brake pads 2006 dodge ram now they smoke after driving. Will this stop.

Yes, You must have gotten lube on the rotors when you changed them. esp. wd 40 or brake fluid. does it stop evenly and and as quickly as before?

If so, were they metal or asbestos brakes? Asbestos might burn if the rotors were scored.

you need someone actually in vehicle after you put the brake pads on start at one side have them pump the brake then hold down tight calipers until they are on rotor then do it again and again by then it should not be soft go to the next side and repeat the process

04 dodge ram 1500 HEMI's new brake pads won't fit

what you need to do is line clamp brake hose so you dont push dirty brake fluid back into your system..(you can use a pair of needle nose visegrips if you dont own an actual line clamp) loosen bleeder at this point, remove caliper from attatching bracket, with old pad still installed next to piston use a big C-clamp to compress piston, just make sure clamp is centered and compress slowly allowing brake fluid to escape through loosened bleeder... once compressed tighten bleeder and install caliper and pads remove lineclamp....******NOTE******* no need to bleed the system cause of lineclamp procedure... Make sure upon reassembly you use plenty of brake lube on all sliding caliper parts...Good Luck

Brake pad replacment on 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

Remove two bolts holding caliper on and pull up as hard as you can on the caliper. Wiggling back and forth at the same time helps.
