3rd Gen Ram Tech2002-2008 Rams: This section is for TECHNICAL discussions only, that involve the 2002 through 2008 Rams Rams. For any non-tech discussions, please direct your attention to the "General discussion/NON-tech" sub sections.
So far I have:
Replaced rear parking brakes on both sides and backed them all the way off.
Replaced rear rotors.
Replaced rear pads.
Removed rear pad slides and wire wheeled the bracket.
Replaced and greased pad slides.
Replaced both calipers.
cursed a lot.
When the truck is driven there is a pronounced scraping/scrubbing sound (once per tire rotation) from the drivers side.
When truck is on jack stands there is a loud clicking noise from passenger side when idling in drive. Again one noise per tire rotation.

As far as I can tell yes. The only abnormalities are weeping wheel seals (very minor) and the parking brake engagement mechanism was frozen solid on both sides, I had to remove the passenger side one in order to soak it in blaster and unfreeze it. re-installing it damaged the boot that protects it slightly.
On jack stands the sound is coming from the passenger side wheel, sounds like it is near the caliper. I forgot to say when you ride the brakes and gas (same time) down the road the sound is muffled quite a bit.
