Caster varies with front and rear spring loads (frame slope) and therefore should be checked when the vehicle is loaded. If caster cannot be checked when vehicle is loaded, the no load caster is approximately 1 to 2 for manual and 5 to 6 for power. If vehicle wanders caster should be increased. If steering effort is very high, especially when taking corners, caster should be decreased.

While this data is listed in the Dodge truck service manual only for the non-driven front axles, I include it here for its potential in trouble shooting steering issues on trucks with driven front axles, especially those that have suffered excessive lift.

The Uni-Servo brake wheel cylinder has only one piston which applies pressure directly to only one shoe. That shoe in turn transmits the pressure, via the adjuster, to the second shoe which is anchored against the blind side of the wheel cylinder. This compared to the more common Duo-Servo where the wheel cylinder has two opposed pistons applying force to both shoes against the adjuster joining them at the end opposite the cylinder.
Lockheed type brake adjustment is obtained by rotating individual eccentric bolts which replace the more conventional floating adjuster. Correct leading and trailing shoe adjustment is crucial to satisfactory brake performance. When adjusted correctly, however, the brakes perform very well.
The WM300 Lockheed type brake wheel cylinders have different bore diameters fore and aft on each wheel cylinder. Can't remember which is larger and I'm sure as hell not going to take it apart just to find out for you.
Two wheel cylinder/floating shoe brakes on rear.

  Brake Booster
   
Don't have much info to impart on brake boosters at this point. According to the 1965 Chrysler Parts Catalog the D100 was not offered with a booster. The D200 and W200 used the same booster, and the WM300 and W300 used the same booster. Just to confuse the issue, however, the 1963 Full Line Specifications states that the WM300 booster has a 71/2 inch diaphragm while all the others have a 61/8 inch. So...

When I get an opportunity I'll dig through Hollanders and another interchange manual that I've got to see if I can deduce a little more about the damn things. Meanwhile, if anybody has additional info, I'd appreciate hearing it.
