Not to sure what year your Dodge Ram is, but the job is fairly straight forward, I would recommend a factory service manual before you begin, if you don't have one already, here is link to an inexpensive full factory service manual, they specialize is Dodge Trucks. Dodge Ram Service Manuals

Right front clunking noise


It sounds like the CV joints are going bad on the passenger side drive shaft. Make sure none of the obvious like ball joints, struts, springs, and any other suspension parts aren't loose or broken. More than likely its the CV joints, but if you do one side, might as well do the other. (an ounce of prevention saves a major headache later)

If this is the only problem you notice, it sounds like universal joint going bad in the drive line. Put the gear selector in Drive from neutral and then back to neutral and then select reverse. Listen for the clunk when changing from drive to neutral and neutral to reverse. A bad universal joint will make a clunking sound when the drive line reverses direction because of the slop in the joint due to the bad needle bearings.

Truck makes a clunking noise when shifting into out of Rev to drive


  • Hi, I can help.
  • Sound like your U-Joints are going bad.
  1. At the very back and front of your rear axle you will see some bolts.
  2. Remove them bolts and drop the shaft.
  3. I have seen and done the hammer the U Joint thing but you can screw your shaft up so I recommend you take the shaft in and have the U-Joint pressed in and balanced.
  4. Some shops will let you but your own quality U-Joint in and the cost is just for the removal and pressing in of the new U-Joint and then a good balancing is always recommended.
  5. U-Joint cost $25 for a real good one. I recommend one with some grease fittings because if you keep them greased then they should never go bad on you again.
  6. Maybe $50usd to remove the old one and press and balance the new one.
  • You may also want to check the transmission mounts real good too. Sometimes this can make a clunk but it is probably the U-Joint.

  • If you have any comments you can feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

it sounds like a ball joint which is located by the wheel. jack up that wheel and try to move it side to side and up and down by hand. If it moves then your ball joints are bad. You can do the work yourself, however you will need a ball joint press. If it is a ball joint I would get if fixed quick, when a ball joint breaks the wheel will either lay over sideways or go up and rip the fender off the van.

Sounds to me like the CV joint is going bad.
If the little accordian like boot is torn or cracked it will get water and **** inside and go bad quickly. If it goes bad it will crack the boot in most cases. It the car has 80,000 miles or more on it you should have a mechanic look at both CV joints on each side of the car.
If any of the CV joints are bad you should change them all because you do about the same ammount of work and you get the whole drive system done right.
The CV joint is just a universal joint for a front wheel drive. As it gets worse it will transfer the vibration to the engine and transmition which will cause more problems right away so you don't want that to happen. You should have it checked right away.

Clunking in tire


check ball joints by lifting front end and shake tires. if loose your ball joints are bad. you will hear a clunking sound as you apply brakes during driving. its the play in the ball joint. the dealer wants $600 in labor. $160 in parts at auto zone. get the ball joint press also. good luck.
