First open the hood and remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir. Then remove the front wheels. Now remove the two brake caliper mounting bolts, located behind the caliper, with 14mm socket and ratchet. Remove the caliper from the rotor and place it on top of the control arm. Slide out inner brake pad and outer brake pad. Lubricate back of new brake pads with muti-purpose grease. Reinstall new brake pads into the mounting bracket. Before the caliper is replaced, the pistons have to be depressed back into its "bore", or housing. This is done to make room for the new, thicker, brake pads. This can be done with a large C-clamp and an old brake pad. Place the caliper upside down on top of the control arm, place an old brake pad against the pistons, tighten with a C-clamp until the piston are fully depressed back into its "bore". Make sure the rubber around the pistons is evenly depressed. If it is not, tapping the brakes will bring the pistons back out. After the pistons are fully depressed, replace the caliper back on the rotor. Reinstall the two brake caliper mounting bolts. Replace the wheels. Replace cap on the brake fluid reservoir. Your done, step on the brake pedal a few times to bring the pads into contact with the disc.

There is one on the top of the rear axle, and if it has four wheel abs, there will be on at each front wheel.

The left front speed sensor is electric and does not have a cable. The sensor is accessed by removing the brake rotor.

Yes, if it's the same model (1500, 2500, etc.).

No, they will not clear the brake calipers.

No, there is not a diagram for the rear brake assembly for a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 online. The diagram can be found in its maintenance manual bought at auto part stores.

Look on inside of front wheels, if it has front ABS you should see a wire going to wheel in addition to rigid brake line

In the exhaust, front of catalytic converter.

It just means that your truck needs to be realigned. The left brake caliper or left front brake hose is seized/restricted and needs replaced.

The 1995 wheels will not clear the brakes if you put them on the front of a 2002.

If the parking brake pedal on your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 is stuck to the floor, you might have broken the parking brake cable. Remove the rear tires to see if the cable is still attached and replace it as needed.

Most likely the front squeaking while turning is a brake issue. If this is the case and it is left uncorrected, you could be looking at a very expensive brake job.

The abs uses the brake fluid from the regular brake master cylinder.

If equipped, it is under the dash directly to the left of the brake pedal. It is a blue connector.

Some brake light switches are only adjustable once.

If you mean the brake lights are stuck on, then check the stoplight switch located on the top of the brake pedal.
