SOURCE: Creaking/friction when I hit a bump?

Still sounding like a bushing, but it also could be related to a strut. I have tried this in the past....jack the car up and ONLY on one side first, use WD-40 and spray each of the bushings well. Leave the upper strut area alone...do your normal driving. If you still have the squek/crunch, etc, spray the upper strut area. A rare ocassion it can be the upper strut mount.

let me know how it goes!

Testimonial: "I'm fairly certain it is the strut. I didn't do your test, but when I asked a mechanic who took a look at it, I think they said strut."

SOURCE: the front drivers side hub is making noise when i

sounds like you have a bearing going out in the hub. The reason it stops making noise with 4 wheel engaged is having the truck in 4 wheel drives puts power to the front hub. Which gives it more stability. In other words you have power which helps bind and hold the bearings from more extensive travel then with it disengaged. The other possibility is you have a ball joint going out. If you are capable of inspection on these to possibilities you will need to jack it up and inspect ball joints for movement and look for abnormal up and down movement of the hub. If not take your truck in and get the front end inspected at a brake or an alignment shop.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x2 - Drivers side front wheel feels like it is catching on something.


Have you not looked over the brakes & even taken
things apart, looking for & eliminating brakes as an issue?
Checked drive axles,joints,etc.
Tires won't make a noise & brakes are not near the wheel,
to touch anything
New wheel hubs are ruined by mechanics obsessed with those
air driven impact guns,you need to use a torque wrench on the
axle nut of a new bearing

Rear suspension left side makes a knocking sound while driving


There are a few suspension parts that can cause knocking noises. Such as swar bar loose, strut mounts going bad. You should really have a shop do a complete suspension check.

Grinding noise when I pull off and clunking noise on bumps


Front hub bearing. If you were the one who replaced the pads you should have turned the hub while the caliper was off and checked for roughness or wobble. Imagine the rotor wandering from side to side and rubbing the pads; thats what a worn hub will do.

Banging noise in 4 wheel drive under torque. front hub questions.


Hello scotch1812, those of us that still enjoy the square headlights have to stick together! The front axle in our YJ's are dana 30 with a high pinion! The high pinion make the ring and pinion spin in a reverse rotation from the dana 30 found in CJ and TJ Jeeps. When Chrysler designed the YJ front axle, they removed the manual hubs like those found in CJ models and installed a vacuum disconnect on the passenger side axle shaft. The passenger side axle shaft is 2 piece with a sleeve that is moved into place to connect the 2 pieces of axle shaft when you shift the transfer case into 4 wheel drive. This is done via a vacuum module mounted on the axle housing. If your module diaphram goes bad you have no 4WD! If your vacuum hose comes off of the module or breaks you have no 4WD. Now when your transfer case is in 2WD the front driveshaft does not turn. The vacuum disconnect allows this to happen. As for the hubs, they are simply hubs with sealed bearings and a universal joint to allow your front wheels to turn left and right. If you hear the banging noise in 2WD it could be a bad universal joint in one of your axle shafts.

Now if you are hearing the banging noise only when you are in 4WD there could be a number of reasons. You could have a broken axle shaft or a bad bearing in your ring and pinion. Your front driveshaft could be bent or at least not straight. I would start with the driveshaft. Just lay under the Jeep (Not running! With emergency brake set!) and spin the front driveshaft. If it spins true and doesn't have an out of round rotation we can rule that out! Also, grab it and push it and pull it to check to see if your universal joints in the drive shaft are gor and tight! They can make a grinding noise or popping noise if they are bad!

Try these and let me know what you find! We will find your problem!
