i would check the rubber lines on all wheels since you said front wheel was smoking sounds like a line may have delamed and won't release caliper...

replacing the rubber hoses would be cheap insurance as the older dodge trucks have weird brakes to begin with ..i drive a 93 d-250..

also the snythytic fluid is silicone and it doesn't take heat well so use regular fluid.. dot3 i believe yours takes...and bleed till comes out clear 2 quarts of fluid should do it

unfortunately you may need to replace the pads and have rotors turned or replaced as well if was hung up

like the hermit crab i wish to take my home with me

Don't believe everything you hear. Most Nascar teams use Castrol Synthetic for the high boiling point. But a short track brake system costs $40,000 and the fluid is changed before each race.
