    I have changed rotors, front brake calipers, 4 wheel alligenment,balanced tires, changed out bushings on lower control arms, even gone so far as to have mechanic swap out tires from new ram 1500 4x4 and test drive with same problem.

    Someone told me that on the 2500/3500 deisels the frame was the problem and an aftermarket mfg. has a frame brace for it. Anyone know if there is such a part for 1500 gasoline models?

I have some front end viberation in my 2006 dodge ram 1500 quad cab 4x4 while driving at highway speeds and also braking at high speeds?


There could be several causes. You could need your tires balanced, you might have unevenly worn tires caused by loose steering parts or worn shock absorbers. Have a tire shop check the tires. If the vibration gets worse when applying the brakes it indicates warped rotors. If they have not reached minimum thickness they may be able to be resurfaced - however - resurfacing removes more material and takes away their ability to get rid of heat, meaning they could warp again sooner. Fast driving and hard braking causes the heat that causes warpage.

Front end vibrates when braking at highway speeds


Most common cause for this is rotors that have become warped. It is not uncommon if you drive fast and brake hard OR live in hilly country or with heavy loads. The brakes get hot - the more they are used the hotter they may get. When they cool they do not cool evenly. If there is enough of the rotor left it may be resurfaced to true it. However - the thinner it gets the less heat it can handle. When rotors reach a minimum thickness (stamped on the rotor) they must be replaced.

Brakesa are jumping when brakes are applied


i do believe you mean the service brakes, and when pushing the brake pedal the truck shakes?

Pad transfer will cause uneven brake discs with humps on em. Every time you then step on the brake pedal you'll feel the pads going over the humps, causing the shakes.

The best way to get rid of this is to replace the disc brakes with new discs.
Remember to change the pads too.

Abs and park brake light came on same time


Its either the speed sensor on the rear differential or your steering wheel is all the way down pinching a wire in the harness. I have had both problems. Raise the steering wheel and if that does not fix it then its the speed sensor(might be called something else) but it is on the rear diff.
