Check your u-joints first. If it is not the u-joint, then it is probably the yoke. Take the driveshaft off/out and on the yoke you will see a nut, make sure that it is tight. You will want to drain and refill your rear end gear oil as well.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram and I have a deceleration jump/vibration at around 50-40 mph. When the brake is lightly applied it happens, when heavy brake applied it stops. I'm thinking front whell bearings

The front rotors are warped, the reason you feel it when lightly braking is because the pads are just brushing the high spots as they come by. Heaving braking will lock them in tighter and you will not notice it. They have to take the rotors off to turn them so they can check the wheel bearings at the same time and replace or pack them. Just have the rotors turned if they are not worn under the federal limits. If they are worn too bad you will have to replace them.

Rear end noise on a 2003 dodge ram 2500 RWD truck makes noise while driving but not while stopped with rear end jacked up and wheels spun by hand

Most likely a bearing in rear end. Pinion or wheel bearings. Have a good independent shop install noise sensors located at each bearing location to verify which one it is. Oh yes I'm assuming you have done the obvious check it for proper level of lubrication in the rear end.

this is an indication of front end wear in tie rod ends and suspension parts . What you describe is castor wobble and comes from suspension faults and incorrect wheel alignment. have it all checked out in an accredited suspension/ wheel alignment shop

How to set crown + pinion gears on 1982 dodge ram

you adjust the backlash and pinion depth by add or removing shims from the side bearings and from under the large pinion bearing, here is a pattern chart, you will need to get some pattern past and put on the gears then turn the pinion and check the pattern on the gears keep adding or removing shims until you have the pattern correct.....good luck\

P.S. I cant recommend doing this job by yourself get some help from someone who has done this before, 9 out of 10 people who try this repair will destroy the rear end, if the pinino depth is to deep you will brake the ring gear if to shallow the rear end will make so much noise you can't drive it.

When in four wheel drive high, have vibration, and while vehicle is moving if i turn left or right the truck stops dead like your hitting the brakes. what could this be?

You need to have the front end and four wheel drive checked ASAP, with your vehicle vibration and slowing when you turn the wheel tells me you have some excessive wear and damage this could be dangerous if you continue to drive it. I would have the front end checked completely, I am willing to bet one or both front drive shafts need replaced and every thing else needs checked.

Please take a moment and rate my answer.............Thanks

The front suspension on Dodge Ram 1500

If your not hauling a load reduce you tire air pressure, will give a little more smoother ride, also under braking have your front brake rotor checked they might be wrap.

2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4 rear end squeks when turning formard and back only in turns you can hear the sound raadiate out through the wheel hubs

What is the rear diff fliud like? Is it full? Have you inspected the brakes, and if so, what have you found. As far as the u-joints go, get under the vehicle and see if you have free play in the joint area. Grab hold of the drive shaft and turn it back and forth (engine off of course and parking brake applied), and see if there is excessive play. Is there evidence of rusty coloration around the caps of the u-joints? Hard to say what the exact cause is from a chat.

Whinning noise in rear end on 99 dodge ram truck. Where can I find information to possibly replace rear bearings??

Not terrible of a job to do. You will have to jack up the rear end and support it on stands and be sure to chock the front wheel so it does not roll forward while jacking it up. Remove the rear wheels and the drum assembly or rotor if disc brakes. Remove the rear differential cover be sure to have a drain pan to catch the fluid that comes out of it. Find the center carrier you will see a pin about 3/4 of inch in diameter going throught the center carrier with a bolt on one end remove the bolt turn chunk until pin comes out. Push the axle in enough to let the c-clip to be removed then pull out the axle. You will then have access to the axle seal and axle bearing. You will probably need a bearing puller with slide hammer to get bearing out. Then put back together.

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.

do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped
