I just replaced the right caliper on mine. It was $29.99 after core. I replaced all the rubber hoses just a year ago along with just about everything else (a couple of steel lines weren't replaced). I just wish I could get a nice high solid pedal on my truck....
It also gets to be fun when you get an idiot to cut you off on a freeway and have JUST the rear brakes lock (twice in one day!). The front brakes won't lock and my RWAL don't work. Go sideways when doing about 60 mph makes you pucker and just about rip a chunk out of the seat......

OK, I just got back in from doing some more diagnostics on the RWAL. The light blinks four times indicating a "Closed RWAL Valve Switch". Is the switch in the RWAL Valve?

Crap. That is one part that is not available, but I just may have enough parts to make one work.

Yep, but there was only one RWAL valve and one fitting was cross threaded. There are a some 4 wheel ABS valves but they use different fittings.
Anybody know what the RWAL valve switch does for the system?

Well, the crap continues...... This morning on my way to work my cruise didn't work. I looked in the mirror and the darn brake lights were on! If I pulled up on the pedal they would go out so I stopped and adjusted the switch and the lights stayed out (for the first 1/2 mile) but the cruise still didn't work. I stopped again and used a bungie cord to keep the brake lights from being on all the time. Thankfully it will be an easy fix once Nikki gets here with a switch for me.........

Thanks, Chris! Every time I do anything to the brakes they seem to get a little better, so I guess I should keep plugging away at them......The pedal is a good bit higher and I can feel more of the front brakes working so it is an improvement!!
