    i think that i want hardwear, i was told the brake caliper pistons were sticking and i need to fix it

    I'm not sure what you mean by a brake repair kit. Are you talking about replacing the brakes (drums/discs) or just replacing some of the hardware items on the brakes?

My personal opinion is you don't want to rebuild a caliper. Most times now calipers are replaced as a unit (you can replace just one side without a problem) as the labor and time to work on a caliper is offset by the price of a new or rebuilt unit from a parts store. I don't have the pricing for your particular vehicle, but a phone call to an auto parts store can get you a price and availability instantly. I'm not sure if most auto supply stores would even stock the pistons and seals needed for the rebuild job.

How do you fix sticking caliper pistons for a 1987 dodge mini ram van


If its the piston thats sticking you can purchase a kit for it but your probably better off buying the caliper. If the caliper is sticking and not sliding back and forth you need to buy a brake hardware kit for it. From my experience the brake hose usally collapses on the inside and causes it to stick you might want to check this out.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 conversion van rear brake hammering


Are the brake shoes on right, there are two size shoes, One shoe has a longer brake lining then the other. The short brake lining is towards the front of the van and the longer brake lining is towards the rear. The rear brakes also may need to be adjusted, you can do that by going in revers in a empty parking lot and push the brakes as hard as you can to stop the van. Don't give your self a whip lash, just push down gradually and as far to the floor you can about 7 to 10 times. The self adjusters should adjust the brake on both sides, try this first before you take the brakes apart again. It may just need a adjustment and after that check the brake fluid in the master cylinder. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help

You must have ripped the wires off underneath your truck, and you probably don't have brake lights anymore either. Better get somebody to repair it as soon as you can.

Need location/description of brake light switch for 99 dodge van


This is not vehicle specific, but normally the switch is near the top of the brake pedal arm, on the side closest to the front of the dash (opposite side from the firewall) - it should be pretty obvious. it has a 'pin' that is pushed in when the brake pedal is at rest, and as the brake pedal is depressed, it pops out, closing the switch.
