It sounds like yoke bearing. Drop drive shaft and see if yoke pulls in and out with little to no turning involved.

Can you switch a 2 wheel drive dodge ram transmission with a 4 wheel drive Dodge Ram transmission

yes you can what year is your truck? you will need around the same year truck to make it easier ... you need the front axle drive shaft and suspension components, as well as to be a decent welder. you need a 4x4 transfer case drive shaft and the output shaft from a truck with 4 wheel drive. other than that all you need is $$ way to go is find a cheap 4x4 with a blown engine and swap, or trade yours for a 4x4... its a lot of work

Will 1994 dodge dakota 4x4 rear end match up to my 1995 dodge dakota 4x4. gear ratio wise

There should be a silver tag under one of the bolts on the rear ends. The numbers must match. If no tag is present with one wheel off the ground count the number of rotations and note the clock position of the final position of the drive shaft to make the wheel turn 2 complete revolutions. 3.50 rear end = 3 full turns of the drive shaft plus a half turn (6 o'clock.)

Pry it off the yoke with a prybar. The shaft has a slip joint in it.

2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4 rear end squeks when turning formard and back only in turns you can hear the sound raadiate out through the wheel hubs

What is the rear diff fliud like? Is it full? Have you inspected the brakes, and if so, what have you found. As far as the u-joints go, get under the vehicle and see if you have free play in the joint area. Grab hold of the drive shaft and turn it back and forth (engine off of course and parking brake applied), and see if there is excessive play. Is there evidence of rusty coloration around the caps of the u-joints? Hard to say what the exact cause is from a chat.

96 Dodge ram 1500 Vibration Problem

You should have the u-joints checked for movement and also checked to see if they are seizing. If you have a 2 piece drive shaft check that the steady brg is not worn out.. Also check to see if you have any movement at the rear pinion shaft. No movement is allowed. Hope this may help.
