Check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced

    to be honest i'm not sure how much a shop would charge to rebuild the differential. every shop is different when it comes to labor rates and parts pricing. your best bet is to call around and get estimates from a few different REPUTABLE shops. not every shop has a technician that has experience in rebuilding differentials so don't always go for the cheapest place in town. right now the automotive industry is hurting so a lot of places will take on the job even if they havent done it before. you don't want that. you want a place thats reasonably priced and has a good customer satisfaction rate.

My 98 dodge ram vibrates bad at 40 mph plus at a steady low rpm. if i step on the gas it kinda stops and if i let go of the gas is stops completely it also started misfiring when it started this


Torque convertor shutter? Maintain the speed that it does this, and with your left foot, apply a small amount of pressure to the brake pedal. Not enough to slow vehicle, but enough to disengage the lock up convertor. If it goes away, try servicing the fluid with new 7176. if that doesnt do it, replace the convertor.
