Chrysler Full-Size Trucks 1967-1988 Repair Guide



Brake shoes contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.

There are two types of front drum brakes used on Dodge and Plymouth trucks, a servo type with single anchor, and a Bendix Duo-Servo type. The servo type was used exclusively from 1967 to 1970, and the Bendix Duo-Servo was added sometime in 1970 and was used occasionally from then on. The Bendix Duo-Servo type can be identified by the brake shoes which are marked Pri (Primary) and Sec (Secondary) and "This Side Out'', for easy identification.
