Dodge Dakota

How do you troubleshoot a loose front brake caliper on a 1999 4X4 Dodge Dakota even after pins are tight and the system is bled?

One thing you might try is to using heat resistant silicone. Take the capiler off removing brake pad apply the silicone around the highest edge of the capiler where it touches the brake pad. Apply a thin coat over the back of the brake pad. Let dry and reassemble. If chatter is what you are getting this may alleviate the problem it also should give the added tension. Use silicone sparingly.
