Question 2009 ram 2500 5.7L grinding noise front end while driving :Wow1:

Noise does not happen while idle, starts to grind upon movement. The speed or frequency of the grinding noise increases with speed. It appears to be coming from front left end. It is fairly loud and I pretty much know it is coming from the front left tire area because when driving next to concrete dividers the sound is dramatically louder when wall is on left.

The pads do need replacement, but have only been squeaking for a couple weeks. Does not pull left or right while braking or not, and noise does not change while braking.

Sounds like a unit bearing.

How would I determine if that's the problem?

I also believe it is the front hub...your wheel bearings come with the hub , lug nut studs, and sensor all in one, easy to change, jack up the wheel , take off the wheel, then spin it with your hand, listen for a scraping or grinding noise to come from it, if the weight of the wheel is on it sometimes it wont make as much noise, if you are not sure take the other side off also and compare the sounds, you probably will hear it very well, just did mine last weekend... wheel off, take caliper off, take caliper bracket off, take off rotor, remove 3 bolts holding on hub,remove sensor connector from inner fender, , tap from backside , and its off, change them both, if one is bad chances are the other doesnt have long...

might also wanna check cv axles before if your truck is 4x4. had the same initial thought of it being a hub and upon investigation i found that instead i had just made my cv joint explode

I just changed my left front hub assembly and it was NOT an easy job! I had to remove the Knuckle and use a 5 ton press to get the hub assembly out! I cleaned it up(the knuckle) and installed the new one, took it back to the dealer and had a front end alignment and inspection done. It failed inspection the first time because of the bearing.
My '09 Ram trx4 has 30,000 miles on it. I changed the bearing two weeks ago and today went and got 4 new tires put on at a place where they check the alignment for free. They couldn't check the alignment because the new bearing has too much play! I watched the guy move the tire and did see some movement at the boot so now I'm wondering if I have a bad CV joint?
