Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Ram brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby lengthening the life of your brake system.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Ram rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road continuously.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Ram braking system together so it can function properly.
  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are several types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let find the best type of brake rotors for your Ram
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's very vital to keep Ram brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Ram maintenance schedule for the suggested mileage intervals.
  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your Ram brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined regularly for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your Ram maintenance schedule for more data on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to initiate the parking brake of your Ram.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Ram brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from disproportionate heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

Yes, your Ram rotors will regularly last longer than your brake pads as long as you replace your pads before doing damage to your calipers or rotors. By not replacing your brake Ram pads in a regular manner you can damage the other parts.
