It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.

SOURCE: 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Rear End problems

Hello, well you can look at it in a few different ways. Like you stated you can get a rear end from a salvage yard and not know what you are getting, you can spend some big bucks to get a new rear end, or you can get it rebuilt. I feel getting it rebuilt will be the better option. If you get it rebuilt you will have new parts in the rear end and know what you have verses the cost of a new rear end. This of course depends on how much damage there is in the rearend. Economically I feel that having it rebuilt is the best option. I always get nervouse when putting in any used part because you don't know what you are getting. If you do get it rebuilt make sure they put in new bearings which any reputible shop should anyways.

If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe. 
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 vent hose on rear axel

The hose is only an extension to elevate the vent. Trucks have these so they can be braver about crossing axle deep water.. The plastic piece on the end is somewhat of a chk valve so the hose isn't open to dirt and road spray.It should be cliped to the frame to stay elevated.

Just started hearing a clicking noise coming from the rear of my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500....5.7 V-8 Hemi.....Checked both rear brake, and that doesnt seem to be the problem...From some research, I think it...


Could this clicking sound be coming from the engine area? Hemi's are known for breaking exhaust manifold bolts and making a clicking sound which is a exhaust leak..

Have a rattling engine noise from bottom end of my 2003 Dodge 1500 5.7 hemi engine. Any idea what it might be?


If it's a rattle and not a dull thunk it's probably rod bearings not main bearings

2004 dodge ram rear end noise


while you had the cover off did you by chance look at the condition of the ring gear and spider gears...if it was run for any length of time low on fluid or with two different sized tires you may need some repairs but first inspect the ring gear and rotate till you can see the 4 little beveled gears inside the differential ....use a screwdriver and check for excess movement...look at the crossshaft and look for wear.....hope this points you in the right direction.

I have a loud howling noise coming from rear end.it does it when i am on and off the throttle and it is very loud.2004 dodge slt4x4 5.7 hemi


Hello! This could be from a few things - you could have a differential pinion gear that is misaligned and that will cause a howling noise - or it could also be a wheel bearing. Check your differential fluid and it might be worthwhile changing it.

Hope this helps and good luck!
