my 2001 dodge 1500 4x4 5.9L jerks at 55mph

Asked by Feb 03, 2017 at 09:07 PM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The rear-end is making a whining noise. And I just had a used transmission
installed. When I got up to 50-55mph there was a hard jerk. I slowed down and   
speed up to 55 and it did it again.

The jerking may be the trans but the whining may be from bad bearings in the differential.
