Lowered my ram only 2" in rear and 3/4 " in the front (Cut Coils).
Not sure if the problem is interrelated or just coincidental, there is a very loud whining now and it seems to be coming from the output shaft area of my transmission.?!?!? It developed a few days after I lowered it.
I thought the rear end was toast its so loud I put it on jacks, ran it and the whine seems to come from the front either the front ujoints or the output shaft bearing maybe?
I jacked it back up to simulate standard ride height before I dropped it and it still whines like crazy.
I did have the rear pinion seal replaced about 6 months ago when I first bought the truck, I havent checked to see if that nut backed off or anything yet.
The driveshaft U joint angles are not extreme to any extent at all.
I'm hoping its something simple like the driveshaft U joints, truck has 68000 miles on it.
Any suggestions? I was going to pull the driveshaft and see if the noise still emanates from the tranny as a first step in troubleshooting.
Its an 09 rear wheel drive SLT Hemi.
Thanks for any input folks!
