Front end vibrations at highway speeds

I have a 2005 dodge ram 1500 5.7l v8 hemi. The other day, after a day of driving during a snow storm in 4 wheel drive, the front end started vibrating. When it started I was already back in 2wd. It is not noticeable under 45mph. It was bad enough that my front license plate, holder and frame are gone. They must have fallen off on the highway...

    had the same thing happen when it snowed. Found out that there was alot of snow packed inside the wheels and gave it a vibration. After a while, it went away when the snow fell off or melted. If it continues after that, I would definately say that there is something else wrong.

Could be something stuck inside one of the wheels or could be that the CV axle that gives you independent front suspension has gave in and causing the vibration but it being a 2005 I would bet something like mud in the wheel If you haven't backed up to get the front hubs to unlock that may be a problem also

    It isn't tires. I've got a 2005 with the same vibration and I've had three sets of tires put on in a 60 day period from my local tire dealer because they thought the same thing, tires. The Dodge dealer said they couldn't feel any vibration (funny everyone else does). I've dealt with this issue for 50,000 miles and no one can't find the solution. The vibration goes away at 75 mph. Usually when you can drive out of a vibration it would be tires but not in this case. CV joints are tight, drive shaft is tight, tires are balanced. I'm thinking transmission?????

  • RoyinGa Sep 24, 2010

    could be the drive shaft has thrown a weight or the rear bushing in the trans is worn out

    I'll hopefully be checking later this week and I'll post an update.

Front end vibrates when braking at highway speeds

Most common cause for this is rotors that have become warped. It is not uncommon if you drive fast and brake hard OR live in hilly country or with heavy loads. The brakes get hot - the more they are used the hotter they may get. When they cool they do not cool evenly. If there is enough of the rotor left it may be resurfaced to true it. However - the thinner it gets the less heat it can handle. When rotors reach a minimum thickness (stamped on the rotor) they must be replaced.

Use 2 wheels, the other 4wd low ,for climbing at slow speeds: 4wd high, for driving on low traction roads,like mud or snow,at medium speeds: 4wd auto full time all wheel drive, for highway speeds on slippery surfaces, like rain or light snow.

Rear end squeak

Noise is coming from a dry u-joint and or the carrier bearing if equiped. Usually a u-joint "cherps" in reverse first then only gets worse with time. If it starts vibrating at highway speeds replace them immediately.

4 wheel drive engages itself after rain or snow

I had that problem last year. Dodge fixed it for $500.00 it was the "Transfer Case Motor". Rock Auto Online has them for $140.00. 3 bolts, two plugs, 15mins. and your done. Wish I had known it would have saved me $360.00.
