    Hello. I own a 1989 Dodge Daytona (original owner!), and am located in central New Jersey. I need assistance with routine brake work, I currently can't afford to have it done, and need to do it myself, and am looking for someone to help me out. Any suggestions or advice are welcome. Thanks -...

    I am in need of a set of rear disc brake mounting brackets; the casting that holds the caliper to the spindle and to which the dust shield is mounted. Here they are removed (and painted orange). Any 2nd Gen (00-05) Neon with rear disc brakes would have the same brackets, even SRTs. If you...

    If anyone is parting out a car that uses MOPAR PN 3766 495, it is a plastic twist in clip to retain the paired rear lines. I believe it was used on just about all the K based cars (E,G,J,H,K etc.) but not on the L body. I found that in doing the floor replacement on my K convertible all but 2...

    Hi all, A few friends and I are working on a project 1961 Plymouth Belvedere. We just got the drums off and have installed all new shoes in each corner. We are lost when it comes to adjusting the shoes to get the drums on. It looks like instead of a typical star wheel the Plymouth has adjusting...

    I have a 2011 DGC "Crew" that is going through brake rotors like crazy; it's in the shop now for three warped rotors (two rear, one front), and this is not the first time it's happened. Why do the rotors keep warping? Are the brakes under-engineered on these vans? My '06 DGC doesn't go through...

    Hi everyone my name is jarod and I'm 16. I'm relatively new to the world of Mopars so my question I'm about to ask is probably a dumb one. I'm working on a 1978 dodge lil red express truck with the 4bbl hi po 360 in it. Been trying to get it to start after sitting for years and trouble shot to...

    Hello, I have a 2013 Jeep Wrangler, which was purchased as a used vehicle at 28,000 miles. At the time, I purchased 3 warranties (Mopar, Chrysler Jeep Extended, and Warranty Solutions). Aside from other things that have been sent to the dealership for manufacturer defects, I have recently (at...

    After a highly publicized “rollaway” death, where a driver left his car in gear, got out, and walked in front of it, FCA issued a recall on all its vehicles with the “monostable” shifters (where the stick flops back to a neutral point). Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram had already given up on...

    Does anyone know if I can swap out the drum brakes on my 2005 Caravan for the disc brakes on a 2004 Grand Caravan? I've been looking around and I see a lot of posts about swapping and the majority of responses are "don't do it, drum brakes are great on the rear...". In my experience they are...

    hey guys, thanks for any responses. I have a 74 Roadrunner that I am attempting to swap the rear drum brakes for disc. It has a 8.75 rear from a 64 Imperial. As far as I can tell the rear lug pattern is either 5 x 5.5 or 5 x 5.25. Anyway, my question is, will any rear conversion kit fit as long...

    The brake proportioning valve in my 1989 Dodge Spirit is no longer working properly. After a fairly thorough online search, it appears that these valves are no longer available, either OEM or aftermarket. So, I'm trying to figure out how to proceed. Some options: 1. Is it possible to...
