Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD

1 Answer

1998 Dodge Ram 2500 V-10 2wd

When backing or going forward slowly, with the steering all the way left or right, there is a grinding noise in the front end. I've checked the brakes and made sure the tires aren't rubbing. I've also replaced both inner and outer bearings and races on both wheels. You can fill the vibration in the steering wheel. Any idea whats causing this.

2006 dodge ram crew cab 4x4 Just had new pads and rotors on front end and still have a slight rubbing/grinding sound but only seems to be from driverside front.

If you start to hear it about 30 - 40MPH and the noise changes if you steer to the left or right than it may be worth checking the wheel bearing.

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 4x4, I notice a noise when turning.

You need to check your brakes ASAP. You may have metal on metal on your front pads. You may have a bearing problem if the brakes are in good shape. But check it out as soon as you can to prevent further damage.

Noise right front wheel sounds like wheel bearing, 1998 Dodge 3500 Van

try steering the the car to the right and the left while driving down the road. listen for the noise to get louder or quieter as you steer the car. which ever direction you steer and it gets louder it will be the bearing on the other side. for example if you turn right and it gets louder its the left bearing because you have just shifted the vechical weight to the left side by turning right. and also in that same situation the bearing would get quieter because you have just unloaded the left bearing and put the weight to the right side.

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...

grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).

sounds like you have a faulty CV joint. if that is the source of the noise i would not mess around and get it replaced. if that breaks you are not going anywhere.
