Dodge Ram popping noise front left (drivers side) suspension

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram Quad cab with about 71000 miles on it. The truck in an auto transmission with the 5.9L motor. Today as I was sitting getting ready to leave, I turned the steering wheel and a popping noise sounded from the drivers side suspension. It makes the noise whether I turn the wheel left or right. Any thoughts??????

    The truck is making a squealing grinding noise that gets worse as you turn the wheels?

My father had this problem on a car years ago and I have see others have it also . The poping noise is often for a ball joint and then the wheel just falls off. Have the ball joints inspected for excessive wear

this light is telling you that there is something wrong with the system. like fluid levels in the transfercase or front diff it could be telling you that the transfercase may have some internal issues. I would take it to a transmission shop and have them look at the tcase and front diff

Front End Problems


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.
