I have a 1999 Dodge Ram and I have a deceleration jump/vibration at around 50-40 mph. When the brake is lightly applied it happens, when heavy brake applied it stops. I'm thinking front whell bearings


The front rotors are warped, the reason you feel it when lightly braking is because the pads are just brushing the high spots as they come by. Heaving braking will lock them in tighter and you will not notice it. They have to take the rotors off to turn them so they can check the wheel bearings at the same time and replace or pack them. Just have the rotors turned if they are not worn under the federal limits. If they are worn too bad you will have to replace them.

I have a 99 Dodge ram 1500 5.2L stick shift and the front end is making a pulsing grinding noise at 15-30 mph, it stops as soon as I apply the brakes or turn.


1) Could be a stone or something similar between the pads and disks on your front brakes. Wheel off check the disks are they pitted, rusted or scored. Look for stones or grit between pad and disk.

2) Could be a wheel bearing, jack up the car (Securely) see if there's any play in the wheels. Try to rock them side to side and top to bottom. If there's play (movement/judder) from the hub, your bearing needs replacing.

1998 dodge ram 4x4 how do i replace the front u joints on passenger side


u need to take of the brake pads and rotor. loosen the three bolts to the wheel bearing, take the top one completely out. take a long socket with another guy in the truck. start it and have the socket wedged on the bolt and the front axle. dont use the 12 point socket ur using to loosen bolts. it might break. anyways turn the steering wheel until the socket pushes on the bolt breaking the bearing loose from the axle u get that and u pull the shaft out and change the u joint

Noise right front wheel sounds like wheel bearing, 1998 Dodge 3500 Van


try steering the the car to the right and the left while driving down the road. listen for the noise to get louder or quieter as you steer the car. which ever direction you steer and it gets louder it will be the bearing on the other side. for example if you turn right and it gets louder its the left bearing because you have just shifted the vechical weight to the left side by turning right. and also in that same situation the bearing would get quieter because you have just unloaded the left bearing and put the weight to the right side.
