How about the u-joints? Could be the ones to the front wheels or the u-joints on the driveshaft.

99 dodge stratus real bad grinding noise in front end and its not the breaks


Only thin left is the wheel bearings failed or if front wheel drive then a failed cv /s joint. IF the bearings are faulty the grinding noise will be the disc rotor grinding on the caliper . Check out the front end and look for failed ball joints in the suspension.

I have a roaring/grinding noise in the front passenger side wheel of a 99 dodge ram 1500 4wd. i checked for play in the wheel and there is none. i also checked the clearance on the dust guard. everything...


sounds like your brakes on that side are metal to metal, tearing up your rotor... when they get this bad, they will make noise all the time and you dont have to be using your brakes for them to grind and roar

2005 dodge ram 2500 4x4....getting an intermittent grinding noise while driving in the front of truck..possible front differential..;....chrisdawe@comcast.net


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.

2008 4x4 dodge ram big horn edition. front end rattle on driver's side when driving over bumps/cracks in the road, more apparent when driving slower speeds


Maybe try to spray some lithium grease from a can on all of the pivot points for the lower control arms and the shock mounts and spring mounts, etc., that could be making this noise.

If that doesn't solve the problem, maybe have the truck aligned to see if there is a loose part in the front that may be causing this rattle.

Good luck in repairing this problem.

Grinding in front end


If the sound changes as you turn side to side it is your wheel bearing (hub assy)

My 2002 Dodge Neon makes a loud, almost grinding noise in the front end which is worse in the morning and lessens as it drives and warms up. Hear the noise only at lower speeds. There is no vibration...


I'd say there's no grease left in the CV joint boots, if it's front wheel drive. Something you should check right away, as your car has about reached that age, and if you run it without grease in the boots, you'll eat up the joints in a big hurry, and that's costly and dangerous as well.

Truck broke


remove outer grease cover,if there is one,then remove the cotter pin holding thr lock nut in place.next try turning the nut clockwise or counter clockwise depending on which side of the vehicle it is.then you can wiggle the wheel side to side to loosten the bearing.that should do it.make sure to re-grease and reverse the procedure
