Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

1 Answer

Rear end squeak

The read end of my 2005 Dodge Ram Diesel is emitting a squeaking noise, but primarily when in reverse. It has become quite loud and annoying in reverse, but can barely hear it in drive. U-joint wouldn't be different volumes in drive versus reverse? Any suggestions of cause and or repair.

Noise is coming from a dry u-joint and or the carrier bearing if equiped. Usually a u-joint "cherps" in reverse first then only gets worse with time. If it starts vibrating at highway speeds replace them immediately.

2005 stratus squeaks in front end over bumps and car shakes when slowing from speeds of 35mph and over

The noise would usually be the strut or the control arm bushings. The vibration could also be the component making the noise, or warped brake rotors.

Rear end noise, shaking

Check the rear driveshaft u-joints. Most likely the rear u-joint at the differential is seized/seizing. May here a rotational squeaking at low speeds. If you want to check it yourself. Remove the rear driveshaft and move the u-joint in each direction and check for tightness. Do so with both ends. Let me know how it works out for ya!

It sounds like you have a u-joint going bad, most likely the one at the rear end. When you replace it get one that you can grease. Hope this helps.

Any idea of what causes squeaking in front end of 2000 Ram 1500? Even when sitting still you can rock the front up and down and it squeaks.

Just about any moving part will do this if they become worn or void of lubrication or built up with rust. Ball joints, tie rod ends, stabilizer links, shock mounts being the most common.
Sometimes hard to tell which one is making the noise as sound travels so quickly through a solid.
I use a stethoscope or a headset with a microphone to help determine areas but even with these tools can be deceptive.

Squeak when starting out in a 2004 dodge ram 1500 quadcab. It is not brakes and it doesn't do it all the time. It gets faster as you go though.

Hello mibparker: If you are sure the brakes are not the source of the problem? I would check a few other things. If the sound is from the front end area. Look at the backing plates on the front rotor area. Make sure they are not touching the rotors. If the noise is from under the truck i would look close at the drive line u-joints. If the are bad they can vibrate or they will squeak or even tweet. This will increase and decrease wit speed of the truck.
If this helps please rate the information as it helps insure you received the right information. Should you need more help please just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Rear end noise

Classic symptom of dry universal joints. Once they start to pop and squeak you can't just grease them you need to replace them. You'll need to drop the driveshaft to know for sure.
