I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with 106,000 miles. When appling the brakes it surges really bad. Installed new pads and rotors. It feel like it only coming from the front left wheel. What do you think is the problem.
Do you
have the same problem?

Please describe what you mean by surge.
If you mean that it pulls HARD to the left, you probably have a bad caliper on the right side. They should be fairly cheap if you buy a rebuilt unit and if you are confident enough to do the work yourself.

Be sure that you bleed the system properly after replacing that caliper. If it does not solve the problem, please leave another reply and we can do further diagnostics.
