Question about 2003 Dodge Durango
The noise is a low toned vibrating one. It only happens after the steering wheel goes left of top dead center and continues until the steering wheel is back to top dead center. I thought of wheel bearings, but it dosn't have that metal grinding noise. We have noticed this sound for months now. The steering fluid is right up where it should be and noise does not seem to be coming from the steering box. It almost sounds like the tire is rubbing on plastic, but a close inspection has not revealed anything.
You didn't specify if your vehicle is 2- or 4-wheel drive.
If 4 wheel, you may have a failing contstant velocity joint which, when having developed worn spots in the cage can cause the noise you describe.
Typically, turning the wheel back and forth can cause the noise to become less or more loud and often the combination of a specific speed and driving a certain curve radius can cause the noise to nearly disappear or become more pronounced.
