anyone got a picture of the brake pedal return spring under the van. I'm not sure if mine's correct/ or maybe it's not install correctly.

Thanks for the picture. That's exactly what I needed to know. Very Happy My spring is incorrect, and is not in the correct location.

looks like it will be a PITA to check that front cylinder.

The front is easy to fill, what is nice about this later model Mopar MC is when filling both front and rear fill from one location, so I fill the front and it internally spills over to the rear well when the front well is full. Now getting the cap screwed on/off is a two finger balancing act.

If you need a source for springs, McMaster-Carr industrial supply has large selection of specialty springs of many diameters and pig tail lengths. I was able to get exact fresh replacement springs for the gas, brake and clutch returns for my Chevy, I imagine they have good replacements for A and E vans as well.  They have a huge online catalog.
