Question about 1998 Dodge Durango
Loud clanking, grinding, clicking noise constantly while front axle rotates. From front left tire rotation only. I free-spun them individually up on a jack. This is when I am in 2wd and all 4wd. Primarily, while i was offroading in snow/ice on rocky mountain roads my 4wd gave out on me completly, used 2wd and chains and barely made it out. no noise in 2wd at the time. next we stopped for dinner on top the mountain, on the way down immediately and thereafter for the 70 miles home I have this main problem. I am now trying independently to learn more about the front differential and also the transfer case as it's what i've been directed to from the majority of my reading. Any help highly appreciated! 98 dodge durango slt 5.2L 4x4 (grinding/clicking LOUD from front left tire rotation, further into axle from tire.)

Sounds like the motor is going out. 2.7s are bad about rod bearings going out. If you don't use the correct weight oil, and change it every 3K, they don't hold up too well.

SOURCE: i have a 98 dodge
if he just turned the cams over by hand then i doubt that he damaged anything as if a valve was open when the piston came to top dead center then it would have stopped moving.the noise isn`t uncommon because the valves springs will make some noise as they are compressed and the rockers will make some noise as they move against the cam lobe and and the valves will make some noise as the valve spring forces the valve shut.if when you aligned the cam marks and they didn`t hit the pistons and stopped you from moving the cams and all timing marks are aligned then you should be okay to start the motor.
