my truck makes a croaking noise like tree frogs when I hit a bump or move my steering wheel


Asked by Jul 19, 2013 at 11:24 AM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 ST SB

Question type: General

3 Answers

sounds like your truck needs to visit a grease gun...sounds dangerous because tie-rod ends are "permanently sealed" but still wear just the there was a grease zerk fitting, we could fix the "frogs"...see an alignment shop...they'll advise on what cannot be lubed and what needs to be replaced...the control arms should have a zerk...tie rods (not so much so)...the strut towers have a rubber piece too that may need an alignment shop, they will advise~



they are takin' away our guns (our grease guns) as bearings are "permanently sealed" makes my want to drill a hole and put a zerk fitting there~...sad state of affairs~
