Q: Front right brake sticking on 1999 Dodge Ram Van 1500

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I've changed the brake pads, caliper, rotor and master cylinder and the brake is still sticking. I replaced the caliper a second time thinking it was defective but that didn't help. The first few times of braking it's ok then it starts sticking again. Can anyone offer any info?

You seem to have covers all the bases. Make sure your hydraulic system is completely void of any trapped air, also make sure there are no grooves on the steering knuckle where the brake pads rest on. It the surface is deeply grooved, replace the knuckle.
Have you solved your brake problem? I have a 96 Dodge Van 2500 with the same story, except both front brakes are lightly sticking. I would be glad to know if you've identified the problem. Thanks. Cxo.
We solved the problem, I sold the truck. I did get a reply from a Mopar guy. He said to make sure the hydraulic system was completely void of any trapped air and also make sure there are no grooves in the steering knuckle where the brake pads rest on. If the surface is deeply grooved replace the knuckle. Hope this will help you.
Good Luck, Sherry
I had the same problem with my 99 Ram. The brake hose needs to be replaced. Replace both while you're at it, and she'll be fine. They are about $20 each.
