Question about Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Have a 04 dodge with a driver side grinding noise that comes and goes. It started after I got my truck stuck in the snow. I thawed out the front end last night, and now its worse. It comes and goes while going down the highway. Sounds like something loose and grinding on the hub. Also in 4x4 it makes a clicking noise like a CV joint. Would a CV joint make a grinding noise that comes and goes?

C V Joints can make a lot of noises. Sounds to me like you either bent the inner fender or if it is plastic you may have pulled it loose and it looks normal but it is just sitting in place with the push pins out of their intended holes. When you turn and or hit a high speed it hits the wheel/tire. Try putting on some gloves and then pulling medium strength on the fender well and surrounding areas to see if that is the problem -

2004 dodge ram 2500 5.9 cummins 4x4 four door long box. Rattle almost like a clunck in the front end. might be a comman problem but not sure if it is what is the cause?


Most common reason is the centering rod. This rod goes from the axle (on the right-side), across and up to the frame (on the left-side). But if you investigate and its fine, then I will need you to give me more specific info about the clunking. When and where it happens. You may need to jack the wheels off the groung and inspect the brakes, wheel bearings, ball-joints, and steering components.

My 2002 Dodge Neon makes a loud, almost grinding noise in the front end which is worse in the morning and lessens as it drives and warms up. Hear the noise only at lower speeds. There is no vibration...


I'd say there's no grease left in the CV joint boots, if it's front wheel drive. Something you should check right away, as your car has about reached that age, and if you run it without grease in the boots, you'll eat up the joints in a big hurry, and that's costly and dangerous as well.
