  3. Stronger Aftermarket CV axle???

    2011 Dodge Ram Forum
    It is looking like I am going to need to replace my driver side cv axle in the relative near future. I figure I will just replace both at the same time. My question is, does anyone make a stronger version for our front half shafts that would be more suited to off-roading than highway use? I...

    2016 Dodge Ram Forum
    I took deliver of my 5500 the very end of last year. I have noticed consistently (as in even after the hour drive home from the dealer) after a long drive on straight roads, a slight shudder from the rear end when turning. At first I attributed it to the Limited slip clutch discs needing to...
  5. 2.8 Bilsteins Won't Affect Your Warranty!! (CV's, etc)

    LD RAM - General Discussion
    When I installed my Bilsteins, I noticed that the passenger side outer CV boot was leaking, and had flung grease around in my wheel well (26,000 miles). Of course I had already completed the driver's side, so I couldn't just take it to the dealer and act like "I didn't do it!". My buddy told me...

  12. Grinding noise from rear when I turn

    Newbie Checkin!
    Just bought a new/used van and it has a grinding noise from the back of the van when I turn or back out of the driveway. It almost sounds like gears are grinding. I have read through some other links and possibly my rear axle fluid is low. Does this sound accurate?
