Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
Do you do a lot of hills work?if so use the gears ,ifdown hill not the brakes if it is auto then slip it down i gear . make sure your rear brakes are adjusted regularly,but for the main part i would think it is the driver that is the problem,you may get an occasional faulty rotor but not three sets, over heating is the cause of your problem.dont missunderstand me chrysler brakes arent anything special but they arenot that bad , slow down

I have a 2001 Dodge Durango that had the same problem. Check the bolts holding the caliper on and see if one of them is cross-threaded. Both of my front ones were because of the design of the caliper. I had to replace the steering knuckle, rotors, and ceramic pads. Problem was solved.

My wife had been driving my dodge for a good year before i lost my company truck, i took it back and found along with many other problems, that my rotors were warpped. i found my problem was that the rear brake adjusters had backed off and the front was doing all of the work thus overheating the rotors. does the park brake hold good? i replaced the rear hardware(shoes were like new) along with new rotors and pads up front. i also had to replace both front brake hoses because she was pulling hard and problem solved. i don't know how the wife ever stopped the truck.....and she never complained about it.
