2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


The truck is a 2003 SLT 1500 Quad Cab 4x4 Hemi with 20inch wheels. The brake rotors warp, which cause the truck to bounce during braking. Initial warpage occurs around 3000 miles, most dealerships appear to not acknowledge the problem. Now that the truck has passed 12k miles, I found a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that suggests turning the rotors and replacing the pads. The rotors need replaced and not turned as it is a defect in materials.

Best Features

The HEMI is awesome, its a shame it won't stop without rattling you and your cargo.

Worst Features

Install high quality rotors!
