Subject: more brake noise
IP: Logged

Message:
I replaced the rear wheel speed sensor and all the dummy lights went out and I thought all was ok. Recently, when I applied the brakes (like slammed them to avoid a car) it made the same noise but no warning lights are on. It almost felt like they were not going to stop and I noticed the same tick noise, only when I applied the brake and I was going forward. I can't quite place my finger on it but something just don't feel right in the front end. Recenly replaced upper/lower ball joints, tie rod ends and replaced front disk brakes, and the rear sensor.

How old is your truck ?? Depending on the age , it may be a control arm bushing as it can click,bang,smack or tick also . How`s your rig on uneven pavement , does it wander ? These bushing are a little work to get in but not impossible and most times overlooked ,I`ve had the problem before now I replace them on anything I buy thats over 10 years old . One more important note , if you do change them , get the factory ones , not aftermarket junk , polyeurothane is deffinately over-ratted in my opinion . Hope it helps , Peter

I found some play in the intermediate shaft that connects to the power steering box. I'm having the same problems with my front end ticking. I'm going to replace the whole shaft and front shocks when i get some time this week. I checked my ball joints, tie rods, etc. and all are in good condition too. If this doesn't work, i'm going to do the brakes next.

Is this where I would add to my msg? (I guess this might help)It's a '98 Dodge Dakota 4x4 v8 mag. with a 4" lift. It seems to travel alittle when going over bumps as well, and I guess it could be the regular ABS noise, I never heard it before I changed the front disk brakes. Also I think I tried to replace the bushings in the
control arm, but If I remember correctly, I think they were only available if I purchased the complete assembly. Thanks for all of the feedback, much much appreciated.
