Hello all,I have a 2008 ram 4x4 with a vibration in gas pedal when turning to the right,parts that i have replaced so far are drivers side bearing hub assembly and the outer tie rod end also on the drivers side.is there something that i am missing or could the problem be on the passenger side.Thanks Schmitty

Well, its hard to tell without being there to look at it. I have a few questions though,
Are you running stock tires?
What aftermarket items are installed on the front axle?
Did you jack up the front-end to check for play in the front wheels?
Does it happen on hard turns or easy turns?

Hello muddbog,i am running stock rims and tires 20",i have replaced front driver side bearing hub assembly and outer tie rod end on same side,there was a little play that is when i replaced tie rod end and you can feel a slight vibration on the gas pedal when turning to the right taking it easy or when turning very sharp. thanks alot

The Dodge Trucks have a slight vibration when making turns which comes from the differential. You could try something similar to this http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/ada.aspx

Hey schmitty, I have a 2007 1500 4x4. I was having the same problem. Where did u get ur tie rod ends? I thought it was my bearings come to find out it was the tie.rod ends. Both sides were bacd. Did u have any problems screwing the tie rod ends to the tie rod?

I have learned through time that anytime u have to replace tie rods or hug bearings and even brakes u should replace them in pairs cause if oneis bad chances are the other isn t to far behind.
