Have the front end checked out. There is a history of lower ball joint problems. It may also just be the alignment. It shouldn't have an effect on your 4wd unless the tires are of different sizes.

Tires leaning in


You should get it to a front end shop, automotive shop or to a mechanic because it could be the front end wearing out badly.

Front end clunck noise on front left with severe tire wear on the inside of tire.happens going strait and on turns over bumps


ball joint has gone or could even be the wheel bearing. jack up the front with wheel on and hand on wheel 9 to 3 and wiggle and then 12 to 6 do the same if there is alot of movement the bearing has gone. ball joint check all the connectors on that side steering etc if they move side to side easy then the ball joint has gone they should be stiff to move.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 crew cab two wheel drive pickup. The front tires have been wearing on the insidefor a while. I have replaced the upper and lower ball joints , lower control arms ,and bal


Strange.
Has anyone checked the front end alignment on a rack ?
Usually when the tires wear on the inside edges the camber is off and the tires are running on the inside edge more than the outside.
Or the front suspension is too low or heavy.

Front end has a slight shimmy and shake,tires worn on the inside,belt is showing! any ideas on what to check?


rise the truck front end suspension, at the front tire gently shake the tire side to side u will fill play in that area. if there is play most likely its the inner our outer tie rods. you can also check the ball joints by moving the wheein the north and south position gently checking for play in the upp & low ball joints.

Wear on the inside of front tires


Toe, I believe is tires pointed in or out like your toes. Caster, think about the casters on furniture that want to point straight in the direction of travel. Here is a good reference: http://www.aa1car.com/library/wheel_alignment.htm

What you are describing could be a toe in, toe out problem or it could be weak springs or overload condition.

If the guy/girl that told you there was no toe adjustment was a front end alignment mechanic, I would be inclined to believe them. If you have not spoken to a front end mechanic, you should.

2004 dodge ram rear end noise


while you had the cover off did you by chance look at the condition of the ring gear and spider gears...if it was run for any length of time low on fluid or with two different sized tires you may need some repairs but first inspect the ring gear and rotate till you can see the 4 little beveled gears inside the differential ....use a screwdriver and check for excess movement...look at the crossshaft and look for wear.....hope this points you in the right direction.

To much play in 1999 dodge Ram 1500 steering wheel, how can I fix


Sounds like worn out steering parts.
Jack up the front end of the truck. Move each front tire side to side and look at the steering linkages.
Normally, when you turn the tire on one side, the tire on the othe side should move at the same time.
It's the best way to find out what steering components are worn out.
