How to Fix the Front Brake on a 2003 Dodge Ram

143

The 2003 Dodge Ram began the third generation of the truck which was available in 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton or 1-ton models. It was also available in two- or four-wheel drive. Replacing the front brakes on the 2003 Dodge Ram employed the same procedure no matter what model or drive train the truck came with. The only difference was on the 1-ton model–if replacing the rotors in that model, the hub extension and mounting nuts must be carefully removed from the rotor.

Tools Used: Tools, Hydraulic jack, Jack stand(s), Lug nut wrench or breaker bar, Socket set, 3/8-inch hex-head key, Large C-clamp or pry bar, Milk crate or sturdy box, Anti-seize compound, Replacement pads, Replacement rotors, Emery cloth, Shop rags, Torque wrench (adjustable)
