i think the fact you put air in your tire at the same time has little or nothing to do with it....BUT i would look at the front end upper/lower ball joints, pitman arm, drag link, inner and outer tie rod ends, check your bearings repack em. what im saying is if you dont know your way around the front end of a truck...take it somplace that does or you could end up spending ALOT more later. i just had one where a chick lost her lower ball joint on the freeway...luckly she dident kill herself or somone else. cost her bout 100 bucks for the ball joint and 1500 more in fixing the repairs of it coming unglued at 75 mph!How do I adjust the front disc brakes on a Dodge Dakota?Sounds like you might need to replace the caliper.The piston is probably sticking. You could also try greasing the tracks that the brake pads ride on. I don't know why it does the same thing when you go over a bump. Maybe its not a brake problem at all!How do I adjust the front disc brakes on a Dodge Dakota?Sounds to me like your shocks are blown and your vehicle is pitching forward/rocking back when you use the brakes, and bottoming them out. Same when you go over the speed bump. Doesn't sound brake related to me. Calipers aren't fastened to the wheel. They contain hydraulic pistons actuated by the brake pedal that drive the pads forward when you press the pedal. If the piston failed in the open position, with the pad against the rotor, you would hear constant grinding and your rotor would be chewed up. I'd check suspension components for the cause.How do I adjust the front disc brakes on a Dodge Dakota?Disk brakes are not adjustable. A loose caliper mount could possibly cause the clunk you're hearing.
You may also have problems in the front suspension. Bent or broken strut. Bad strut mount. Loose hardware. Bad ball joint. Bad shock or shock mount. Bad wheel bearings.How do I adjust the front disc brakes on a Dodge Dakota?What year is the dakota?How do I adjust the front disc brakes on a Dodge Dakota?your brakes shouldnt be hitting because of your tire deflating brakes dont need any more than a cm of clearence to fit it sounds like you have a bad ball joint or one of the suspension arms are broken
