Hi,
your description is a little generic, however, that is what we shall work on.
Is the grinding apparent whether the 4X4 is engaged or just in 4X2 mode? On left lock or right lock?

Best thing would be to put the front end on axle stands and start checking. Check the front wheel station on each side by trying to rock it top and bottom. Rotate each wheel and check for noise. When doing this check, listen for any noise emanating from the actual drive shafts to the hubs.

Drain the front differential and check the drained oil for metal shavings etc. To be honest, "grinding" noises usually are accompanied by damaged parts. It's just a question of checking each item in turn. Also check the front prop / Drive shaft for UJ's that are dry and thus will make noise. Also include the sliding spline in your check, again, if it's dry it will be noisy, and it could be intermittent.

4X4's need to have the front ends greased on a regular and generous basis.
You did not mention if you had hublocks fitted, which would be another check to carry out.

Good luck.

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.

Sounds like the noise is a bad bearing to me. If the ball joints or tie rod ends were bad, you would have irregular steering or in an extreme case, the front end would fall apart and you would lose steering abilities.

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.
