I found a good fix, will try this soon.
Take the "recoil" spring off. Drill a 1/4" hole, (see picts) weld in a 1/4' bolt and reattach the spring reversed. It will give better tension and not slip out of the intended stock spot.

Bro, ditch that junk. I bought a later 2nd gen assembly from 98-02, it was like 60 dollars brand new MOPAR (these 94-97 assemblies are 130).

The mechanism is totally different inside, BUT the mounting is still the same three studs, so it bolts right in. The only thing you have to do is extend your cable under the cab a couple inches, which you can do with a basic swage tool from home depot, and one of them adjustable threaded rod things.

Notice its a totally different, simplified, and looks to be solid mechanism.

I don't know how helpful this is but on my 99 2500 Quadcab 4x4, the abs and brake were on constantly, so I replaced the sensor on the rear diff. Then the lights would come on randomly.........I chased everything. I then tried disconnecting the plug at the abs unit, reconnecting it and pulling the fuse from the box and reinstalling. I don't know why it worked, but it did.
