Rear wheel noise on 1995 1500 SE

Post by Hoiupank »



My 95 1500 SE has developed a noise in the rotation of the rear wheel. Turn it counterclockwise wise and no noise. Turn it clock wise and I get a binding noise at a certain point in the rotation. It just makes the noise at a certain point not the whole rotation. Any ideas ?

You will have to "process of elimination" this.

Tilt the arse end to get at everything..Just like when you change the tire.
A "same drag point" on wheel rotation...
First suspect is brakes.Disconnect the rear caliper and test.
If it still drags at the same point,check the diff oil.

Keep us posted.Take pictures too.

Noise at many points of rotation leads me to the driveshaft or u joint.
