Default Hello everybody.

At my wits end with my 94 Ram. Right now I have multiple problems that Ive never dealt with before. My front drivers side suspension squeaks like crazy going down the road. Also get a loud roaring when I turn the steering wheel. I've greased everything I can and still no progress. Im scared to drive this thing its getting so bad. Also my headlights are very dim and sometimes go out. They eventually come back on, but still thats very dangerous. Any ideas would certainly be appreciated.

Welcome to the Z. Not sure on the squeak. As for the roaring sound when you turn the wheel, is the PS fluid full? Is the fluid in good condition? Headlights sound like a short someplace.

We have a lot of forums for all kinds of topics, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to post questions.

We LOVE pics of Rams.

Here's how to post them: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=73

Default thanks

Power steering is full. It started about the time of the squeaking and has progressively gotten worse. This truck is like new and only has 50000 miles on it. i want to fix these problems but like I said never had these type issues with a vehicle before.

Forgot to ask, is it 4x4? If it is, check the cv-joints. If you can hear the sounds while going slow (walking pace), have someone walk along next to the truck and listen for the sounds. A lot of times its really hard to narrow down sound locations from the cab.
