Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

Dodge ram 1500 4x4

I have a dodge ram 1500 4X4, I had to have the rear end rebuilt about 3-4 years ago. It has now started making a whinning noise. If I change the fluid in it and add the additive it requires should that stop the noise. I can't afford to have it rebuilt again.

Have whinning noise when turning right or slowing down sounds like a power steering noise in rear end


A whinning noise while turning is an indication of a worn bearing. The extra pressure put against the bearing/race during the turn and the closing of a gap creates this noise.I would chech the axle bearings on the side of the truck on the outside the curve when you hear it. What I'm saying is if you hear it when you turn left....check the right side bearing

It would be one of 2 things. Either the transmission is very low on fluid or the pump inside it has gone bad. Check the fluid first. If the pump is bad call the rebuild shop to see if there might be warranty left. Hope this helps.

Rear end on 2006 dodge ram is making noise when i turn corners


More than likely a bad bearing. The bearing that usually is at fault is the one on the same side that you are turning., left turn, left rear, right turn, right rear.

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.

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.
