When I step on the brake I don't hear no clicking noise what is wrong?


What kind of clicking noise do you expect to hear? Applying the main brakes is usually a silent activity.
If you are referring to the emergency brake, it is the clicking of the ratchet when applying the emergency brake. The clicking is the sound of spring loaded metal teeth bouncing along a cog wheel. The action is similar to the teeth on a hand winch that does not allow backward turning. If when applying the emergency brake the sound is not heard then the spring may be broken or dislodged.
Does the brake engage? Does the handle stay pulled until the brake is released? If not then the locking of the brake is not happening.

08 ram 1500 two wheel drive 4.7 flex fuel extreme bouncing when braking, the truck is smooth as silk at any speed until applying brakes (at any speed) you better hold your drink


things to check
if discs -check for good disc surfaces --not cracked or missing
if drums check for cracks or out of round
if solid front axle check for loose worn spring mounts / shackle bushes
if independent suspension check for suspension/ball joints
check for failed shockies
this affect is achieved when the brakes are applied and the wheels stop turning b and the axles are allowed to rotate in the suspension
when that rotation is arrested then the wheels skip on the road and again twist the axles
if it has abs breaking then run the fault codes as it may be faulty and not controlling the brake pressure as set by the foot pedal

FEELS LIKE THE REAR END IS BOUNCING WHEN BRAKING THRU 25 TO 20 MPH. DO NOT FEEL ANY THING IN BRAKE PEDAL. FINE WHEN NO BRAKES ARE APPLIED.


usually if you cant feel a brake pulsation in the peddel or steering, its the rear brakes that may be out of true (warped) if disk. Also bad shocks will no longer dampen braking in rear.

Getting ***** wobbles through the steering wheel. Also a bouncing bad shaking feel once loaded


check the steering for anything that is loose and also check the front tires for a broken belt in the tires. Does it happen when you apply the brakes or as you are driving down the road. If it happens when applying the brakes check the brakes for worn out brake pads. Hope this helps.

When i apply my brakes the truck wants to bounce,shake,vibrate,what all could be the problem?


The vibrate and shake can be caused by warpped rotors. If the brakes have high mileage, it's probabply time for new brake pads and rotors.

98 chevy silverado bounces at 45 mph and when you brake at 45


You can assess this by carefully applying the parking brake part way while holding the release and coasting down hill on an open, unoccupied bit of roadway (conditions permitting). The parking brake applies only the drums on this truck.
A shudder under these conditions would point to drums being out-of-round.
BE CAREFUL!
