When I jack up the rear end with both tires off the ground and transmission is in neutral and try to spin the trans by hand with the drive shaft it has a lot of drag when spinning it in forward rotation but not in reverse rotation also when driving it wont down shift like it should and when let off the gas it acts like your on the brakes even going down hill ....... I already replaced all rotors and pads and pulled axle shafts out of axle to make sure it wasn't the axle causeing the problem

SOURCE: Front End Problems

first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.

SOURCE: I have a 06 dodge ram 3500 with Cummings diesel.

you have what is known as an open diff. or worn out clutch packs in a limited slip. most makers put in a open diff because its cheaper and handles better. if you did not pay for it on your invoice your stuck with stock unless you put it in your self.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly

Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

How do you remove the rear axle on a dodge ram 1500 p-up 2 wheel drive?


1st jack and use jack stands to safely lift the truck.disconnect brake lines and cables, remove tires,unbolt universal rear end to driveshaft, unbolt center bolts from axle to leaf springs, pull the rear end out from the side-much easier with two people. reverse process to put the new one on. I assume when you say axle you mean entire rear end. If you need to remove one axle side just take off tire and brake then remove rear end punkin cover and pull shear pin to remove your ring gear and planetary gear-pull axle shaft.

When Im driving my rear end fishtails why the tires are good


you have a front wheel drive, so first check the air pressure in the back tires, then I'd jack it up and check to see if you have a wheel dragging, caused by a hanging brake caliper/wheel cylinder or possibly a really bad wheel bearing. Your rear alignment may also be really out of wack, so consider a 4-wheel alignment.

Death wooble on a 2005 dodge ram 2500 quad cab 4x4


The easiest way to troubleshoot it would be to jack up the front end and put jack stands under the front axle. Have a friend grab one of the front tires and wiggle pretty hard. (Make sure steering wheel is locked). To check the ball joints have them push/pull on the top and bottom of the tire and see if there is any movement between the spindle and ball joint. If not, check the tie rods next. (have them push in on one side of the tire, pull out on the other, not top and bottom this time). While they are doing this, lay under it the tie rod ends. If there is no movement (slop), check the drag link for play. If those check out, look at where the drag link mounts to the pitman arm on the steering box to see if the top link is shot or if the pitman arm is bad.

If all of this checks out ok, have your front tires checked. Tires that are out of balance can wobble pretty good as well.

2004 dodge ram 4x4 front end shaking problems when we hit a bump...replaced the front wheel bearings,upper/lower ball joints,steering damper!!! any ideas


Could possibly need the steering box adjusted. It might be a little loose. And tire balance usually makes it shimmy. Could have a broken belt in one of the tires. Jack up the wheel and spin the tire and check the run out. (look for a wiggle when spinning the tire).

Is my 2004 dodge 1500 rear wheel drive. Want to make sure which tires to put the chains on.


It is either rear-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. If you don't have 4WD, it's correct to put chains on the rear wheels.

Note that you should not operate any vehicle with 4WD engaged on hard surfaces with chains on only two of the wheels, as they'll be rotating at different rates and you can damage the transmission that way.

How to remove a 2000 dodge ram rear end


Unhook your dive shaft from the rear end. Take your U bolts of off your springs. Make sure that you disconnect the break lines from the rear axle. remove your shocks. It should be free at this point. In stubborn cases, you may have to put a small jack in between the frame and axle and apply very light pressure. Hope this helps.
