It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.

2001 RAM 2500 Brake Pedal Goes to Floor


Excessive runout or wobble in a disc (Rotor) can increase pedal travel due to piston knockback and increase piston seal wear due to necessity of caliper to follow disc wobble. Thickness variation in a disc can also result in pedal pulsation, chatter and surge due to variation in brake output when disc section is uneven. Dishing or distortion can be caused by extreme heat and abuse of the brakes. Hope this helps, Good luck.

I worked on a Dodge car one time and I had a problem with the brakes almost similiar to yours.It turns out a cheap pair of brake pads can mess up your system. I would suggest Bendix pads I also noticed you didn't mention the rear shoes. Any way use better pads it might help.

When useing a rear disc brake conversion kit on 1996 dodge 2500 do you need to change the master cylinder ?


No you do not need to change the master cylinder if the conversion kit is made for this car.
Just will definately need to bleed the master cyclinder if the fluid level becomes empty. Otherwise the pressure is the same.

If you want more info on this, you can view here;

No brake fluid flow to right rear brake


the stratus is know for clasped rear brake hoses .This stops the flow off brake fluid. try opening the brake lines at the master cylinder that go to the rear.pump up brakes first! if you got fluid than check the brake line if this is rear disc brakes on the line at the rear will be a built in proportioning valve.if drum loosen rubber hose line before the rubber part to see if you have fluid. If you do replace the brake hose! On you 74 challenger by the way i love dodge! any way on the valve there is a small button on the front of the proportioning valve that pops out it needs to be tap in lightly. also hit the brake peddel kind of hard a couple off times if that doesn't work. thanks for your question


p.s that hex bar on the is a junction not a proportioning valve .
