If the noise gets worse when you apply the brakes, it is probably worn out brake pads. If that is making the noise you have damaged the rotors as well. Plan on replacing brake pads and rotors.

2005 dodge ram 2500 4x4....getting an intermittent grinding noise while driving in the front of truck..possible front differential..;....chrisdawe@comcast.net


Hi,
your description is a little generic, however, that is what we shall work on.
Is the grinding apparent whether the 4X4 is engaged or just in 4X2 mode? On left lock or right lock?

Best thing would be to put the front end on axle stands and start checking. Check the front wheel station on each side by trying to rock it top and bottom. Rotate each wheel and check for noise. When doing this check, listen for any noise emanating from the actual drive shafts to the hubs.

Drain the front differential and check the drained oil for metal shavings etc. To be honest, "grinding" noises usually are accompanied by damaged parts. It's just a question of checking each item in turn. Also check the front prop / Drive shaft for UJ's that are dry and thus will make noise. Also include the sliding spline in your check, again, if it's dry it will be noisy, and it could be intermittent.

4X4's need to have the front ends greased on a regular and generous basis.
You did not mention if you had hublocks fitted, which would be another check to carry out.

Good luck.

Grating soung coming the front wheel


is it like a growling noise, or a metallic "metal on metal" noise, is it clicking? when do you hear it? Common for wheel bearings to go out on those in my experience. usually you can narrow it to a wheel bearing if when you sway the car, you hear a growling noise towards the heavy end of the car, meaning if you turn to the left, causing the car to naturally sway right, the right hand tire front or rear starts making noise, thats usually a wheel bearing. If its a clicking noise while cornering and especially when corning with acceleration, thats usually a CV axle. if its a metal on metal noise, that can be a brake pad worn to low, or even just a simple backing plate to the brake rotor touching and rubbing the rotor.

Metal noise when reversing front driver side tire chevy trailblazer 2006/


One common reason is a loose heat shield. Weld may have broken. You may be able to bend it enough to stop it rattling against whatever it's coming in contact with.

Squeaking noise coming from front end at low speeds and reverse.


The rubber bushes on the shocks might be worn, or the ones on the lower control arm. It might also be the boots on the CV joints that have worn out and are throwing out the grease, thus creating dry patches of moving metal, creating the noise. Also check the steering rack boots. These are sold by the dealers but could be tough to fit if you don't know how. Hope that helps!

I have a growling noise, almost like it is still in 4 wheel


check the front differential fluid, but also the transfer case fluid as the front diff is most likely the cause, but also check the transfer case fluid. if the front differential fluid is low with metal shavings in it or dry, you'll need a diff. if you have the skill, tools, or time, it would most likely be cheaper to rebuild it, but easier to replace whole unit. you'll be able to tell if the fluid has metal shavings in it, it will be its color, probably dark, with streaks of metallic in it. just hold a light up to it, you'll see. hope this helps!
