Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab with the 5.9L engine, 3:90 axle and a full bed. It has about 150K miles and under load, driving down the road I have a low 'loud' whine. When I let up on the accelerator the whine goes away. The whine starts about 25-30 MPH most of the time. It doesn't increase going around corners. Could it be my center drive shaft bearing? Have any suggestions?
The pinion depth is incorrect in the differential. This can cause excess backlash, improper bevelled gear meshing, and permanent damage to the gear set. It can be repaired most of the time by changing the shims on the pinion to allow 0.010" more penetration o the pinion into the housing.
