Dodge Dakota Noise Right Side

I've replaced and torqued the Hub Assembly. But when I took it to to test it. It seems to still make the noise. I'm lost now and dont know where else to check. Maybe the brakes or the Power Steering Tir Rod Ends?

    Well when I turn the wheel to the right it makes like a burr noise. It feels like the tire and possibly maybe the belt broke in the tire or need an alignment. I'm going to check it out tomorrow.

Sounds like the toe-in. Have the toe-in checked. It sounds like it wants to pull. You might also check the tie-rod ends and ball-joints as they may cause many different noises. Other wise the caster camber could be a cause. You should get this checked by an alignment co. Be safe not sorry. Please.

are you sure the noise is from the same side. it could be the CV on the other side, or the half shaft you changed is bad. it could also be a dry tire bead of hub cap if it has caps.

It is unlikely that the noise you are gearing is actually coming from the differential. Turnuing has littel impact on this. Unfortunately, noises transmit through the vehicle body and can fool us as to where they are actually coming from. You do not say whether you Dodge Dakota is 2WD or 4WD. Usually, turning noises can be isolated to front brakes or bearings. The Dakota has a long issue with front wheel bearings. If you have had the vehicle for a while and have not had any issues with them, now might be the time to check them out. Warning though, get good wuality replacements ( I recommend TIMKEN) and you must always use a torque wrench to tighten the hub nuts or you WILL have premature failure of the new bearing. It is hard to isolate bearings....they run about $100.00 each. If you have tried other solutions and think this is the problem, based on noise/mileage/age, then replacement of both bearings at the same time is a good idea. Additional note: fornt bearings will start to "growl" at you when you shif the steering wheel fron side to side. This noise will get louder as the bearings get clser to complete failure. If they fail, they will overheat and could cause hub damage, which is a considerably more expensive problem to fix.

Am am replacing the wheel bearing hub assembly on a 2001 dodge dakota 4x2. How many pounds of torque do i aply to the spindle nut when replacing?


understandably you want to do things right. i do this job by tightening the nut with channel lock pliers, spinning the rotor, and loosening the nut just til loose and then snug. reinstall the castle washer and then a new cotter pin (if available). make sure there is no lateral play(up and down). you should be good to go. happy holidays

Noise in front wheels of 97 dodge dakota


this is at least one bad wheel bearing, the bearing that is bad will be on the side of the direction you steer that lessens the noise.

Clicking noise in front end 2001 dodge ram 4x4


I have a 2002 Dodge 1500 Ram 4x4, quad cab and had the same problem. In 2wd the clicking was constant, in 4wd it would go away. Also I had no 4wd while in 4wd, found that out after a snow storm. I took my truck to a buddies garage (a Dodge mechanic), he said this is a common problem. He pulled the drivers side wheel, hub, axle and stub axle. The stub axle splines where it goes into the CV joint and and the internal splines in the CV joint were gone. Almost smooth even. The wheel bearing was completely wore out too. I ended up replacing the hub assembly, both the inner and outer axles. Not a cheap fix either I have about $600 repair bill, but it's back on the road now smooth and quite.
