Question about 2001 Dodge Durango
You either have a bad wheel bearing, or a bad brake pad. Does it do this only when you apply the brakes, or making turns, or is it continues. If its only while using the brakes, most likely the brake pads are worn. If it only does this while making turns, may be wheel bearing. Remove the front driver wheel and inspect the brake pad liners. check the thickness of the pads, make sure the pads are not metal to metal. to check the wheel bearing, while wheel is still on the car, put the front of car on jack stands, while wheel is off the ground spin the wheel and listen for any noise that sounds like the sound it was making while driving. If it makes this noise, you then can take a steel tube about 3 to 5 feet long, put it under the wheel and lift up and down on the wheel, and notice if it has any movement or play as you lift it up and down, if it moves, then likely its the wheel bearing.

You either need new brakes on front or your bearings are shot.

hi, you could be right but their is also something else it could be if the brake disk and pads are low then this could also be causing the noise check for any grroves in the brake disk if their are grooves then this needs replacing along with the pads.
If your pads are ok then check their is no rust along the outer edge of the disk as this can cause the noise also if their is a build up of rust running along the outer edge of disk then gently tap this off with small hammer then with the wheel jacked up off the floor spin it with your hand and listen for the noise.
Also try wiggling the wheel as if you was trying to turn it by hand and check for any play also do this from top to bottom as well any play would indicate bearing failure.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Get your truck up in a rack and take a look at the drive shaft, the differential, the u joints and the ball joints. Regards, joe
