What is it that you don't like about the brakes? Pedal hard, low & mushy, weak brakes, or what?

95 ram so can you fill me in on why the rear disc 3rd gen.3500 DWR swap to a 2nd gen (98) 3500 DWR will not work?? Can one do some not so complicated modification to get it to work?

Hi Dave. I am curious as to what the problem with 95ram's brakes are. I got the brakes on my daughter's truck ('98 12v) to work well so maybe I can help figure something out on his..........

Not a 3rd gen swap. I just upgraded to the chevy rear cylinders.

I just dont like the way they stop. I've had 2 01's with rear disk and 2 3rd gens. I'm used to there stopping power. The truck has 315's so that has something to do with it I know, but I just dont lik the stoping power and would like more.

Now I understand what you mean. About the only suggestion that I have is to ask which front pads give you the best stopping power. Unfortunately you will never get the same stopping power unless you upgrade the rear brakes to disk. One thing you can try is to make the proportioning valve linkage longer to increase the rear brake capacity.

Ok so will 3rd gen rear discs work on a 01 2nd gen.Dodge? I know the fronts will. I had rear drums, swapped in a 02 rear disc axle and would like to upgrade to 3rd gen brakes all the way around instead of just the front. Of course, only after I wear these tires out and need tires. Perfect time to hunt for 3rd gen wheels then.

The upgrade wheel cylinder swap is easy as it can be. All you do is pull your drums and just unbolt the old cylinders and bolt the new ones in and bleed them. I did the ones on my daughter's truck in about an hour in my driveway with nothing but hand tools. I would like to see what is involved with the third gen upgrade too.
