Squeak in right front wheel joint.

    Hey all I was wondering if anyone had the same issue I am having. First it's a 94 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 5.9l Magnum. I had a squeaking wheel joint in my right front so last year I changed it out three different times. This year the same squeak is back, I grease everything after each storm to keep water out of all the parts. I also have the front axle locked at all times but it only pulls when I engage the transfer case, there is no squeak when running with no load (transfer case not engaged) The funny thing is at the start of the day today it was squeaking really bad under load and turning, towards the end of the run it only did it while I was turning hard under load. I have lifetime warranty parts on it so changing it isn't the issue. The previous owner of the truck never had this issue with it. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue, and possibly it's something else out of line causing this problem. HAPPY NEW YEARS :drinkup:

    You mentioned greasing, do you have greasable front u-joints?

    Yes I do, and they were greased before heading out.

    My 1999 2500 Ram that I just recently picked up, does the same exact thing but only when its cold, if you run it around for awhile it goes away.... I thought my hub assembly was going bad, but checked everything over and all checks out fine.... Let me know if you figure yours out..
