I checked the fluid level and also tried the turning of the wheel and it did not make any noise. It mainly makes the noise backing up my driveway. Its about a 45 degree angle. Seems to mainly be just from uphill stuff.

Anybody else have any ideas? It only makes the noise when the wheel is turned a certain direction. I only have like 100 miles left on my warranty and everytime I take it into the dealership it does not make the noise. I don't know what else to do.

I had a similar sound, and it was U joints. The rear one actually, but I replaced both.
135k.
Good luck

mine does the same thing and has for years,in reverse and turning,i guess it has something to do with the differential locking in because it does spin over both wheels when you proceed in drive(forward) but mine spins both whether i go in rerverse or not most of the time..

I had the same noise with my 2010 Ram 4.7 eng.Changed tranny fluid @41k and noise is gone. Also the shop added lubeguard supplement to oil. The oil was ATF+4

My 96 made noise in reverse all the time. Didn't do anything else wrong so I just ignored it.

Maddevil, did your tranny fluid look bad at all? Or you just changed it? Becuase I have checked mine and it does not appear to be bad. But if yours looked normal maybe I will just change it.

TP, I Got your PM but was not able to reply to it, not enough posts?
Anyway, The sound was mostly in reverse, but some in drive. I noticed it when backing out of driveway, however that could have been because I had the house beside me to reflect sound back.
I haven't had to replace U-joints in over 25 years, and this didn't sound like anything I remember U-joints doing. The Service Writer at Dallas Dodge listened to it and said U-joints. He was spot on.
The U-joints are 15-20$ at O'Rielly's. I tried the lower priced ones that have a zirk fitting in the yoke, and I couldn't get them to work. I traded those for ones that have the zirk in one of the caps, that worked. Or you could get ones that are perma-sealed.
I had to go out of town the next day towing my Bronco, so I didn't have time to do a lot of shopping.
Good luck.
