Default Replacing wheel hubs

2005 Ram 1500 slt quad cab 121000 miles; Squeal in front end, replaced pads but not rotors, next step is wheel hubs; my question is how do I know whether I have 2wheel or 4wheel abs or does it matter when ordering the hub assemblies? Thanks for the opportunity to post

All you have to do is look at the hubs and see if the sensor line comes out of the top of the hub or not. The wire will follow the control arm up and then cross to the frame. My '07 has it on the drivers side and not the passengers side.


FYI - a hub/wheel bearing will typically emit a low growl when it is going bad, not a squeal. And that growling will change if you turn the wheels going down the road...you can also typically feel it in the floorboards if one is going out.

Agreed! A bearing is a roar, not a squeal. Most 2005 models come with ABS on the rears only. Check to make sure you don't have something lodged between your caliper and rotor.

Rogerramjet i right, check to be sure there is not something stuck in there. Sometimes the backing shield can rust out and debris can get stuck in there creating a horrible squeal. The other possibility is the rotor could be warped causing the pad to graze the rotor while spinning creating a whine. I have had that happen a few times.

Not sure about your squeal. My experience with bad wheel bearings is a roar sound. That squeal may be the beginning of a roar. I believe most 05 models have rear abs only. There will be a wire harness on all 05 drivers side wheel hub assemblies. It is speed/ cruise control sensor. My cruise control went nuts going on and off, then quit and it turned out to be the wheel hub sensor. Good luck!
