Your RAM 1500 uses a trouble-free brake system relying on brake pads, clips, and calipers. Each part works together to ensure that your pickup slows every time you touch your brake pedal. But, regular wear and tear ages brake parts. Whether you buy a new or preowned RAM truck, it’s crucial to keep an eye on your braking system. If you have questions, then contact Dan Hemm Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM near Troy. Our team helps you with every aspect of service.

How do brakes on a RAM 1500 work?

Your RAM 1500 uses two floating piston calipers on its front end. The rear brakes rely on floating calipers and one piston. Once you touch the brake pedal, then a signal is sent to your master brake cylinder. The cylinder tells your calipers to press the brake pads against the moving rotors. Upon compression, your vehicle stops. Of course, your brake system also uses brake fluid provided by brake lines under your pickup. Plus, each brake pad has spring clips for noise and drag reduction.

What is a brake service?

Factory-trained technicians assess your brake system by inspecting your vehicle’s parts. If damage or excess wear is found, then techs take steps to repair or replace your braking components. Then both the front and rear brakes are correctly calibrated to manufacturer-recommended torque specifications.
