Question about 2004 Dodge Ram
2004 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1500 4x4, 5.7 Hemi: Getting a rooring sound from front of truckwhen going down the road, faster that i go loader it is. I have done everyting i know to it, (both wheel bearings are new, new brakes, roters, had the tires rotated and balanced, changed transfer & transmission fluid, checked front & rear diff.) cant seem to figure it out.
First i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.
