Knocking sound from rocking steering wheel left to right

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

As the title mentionned, I want to know if your DJs are doing a "knocking" sound when idling and rocking the steering Wheel left to right. Mine is knocking and want to know if it's normal or not.

 

Also can be releated but when doing sharp turn you can hear slight knocking sound from left side.

 

What has been replaced yet : 

 

Front Shock Strut

Ball Joint

Sway bar Link

 

Both sides.

 

Tie rods are 2 years old.

 

This summer was planning on replacing lower control arms but wondering if I'm having bad CV Axles

If its under warranty, see a trusted dodge service center...  Hopefully it is, let them replace until your problem is fixed.  If not, maybe some videos would help the forum members get an idea about what's going on. 

 

Peace.

CV joints DONT make a noise when still still only when making a turn.if your noise is when you are sitting still but turning the wheel then it is something else. you mention tie rods 2 yrs old but what about the inner tie rods and a lot of other parts could be making the  noise, any garage or tire shop would be able to pin point the  problem for free hoping you let them do the work, take it to 2 -3 places and see what you find out.could even be slop in the steering gear since you didnt state yr of your journey and mileage on it....i actually had a truck making a noise similar like that after i was hit head on, and what it was that dodge had used huge rivets to hold the frame together and during the crash that one of the front ones loosened up enough to let the frame flex when under pressure from turning the wheels,they drilled it out and put in a large bolt never had no more problems from that....

Thank you, my dodge is on my profile, mine is a 2011 with 146000km on it. I know they're a lot of parts still to be replaced that can cause that kind of knocking. I replaced all the rear end, well mostly now I'm attacking the front end. I can still feel it "foat" when the shock is not absorbing. When I replaced the "Shocks" I only replaced the strut and not the strut mout like I did in th rear fault of money, was going for a long trip which cost a lot of money so was trying to a have a peace mind since my truck wasn't quite ready to tow 2000lbs in the shape it was before. I still managed to get back but broke the flexplate.

I'll have it checked since you guys don't have that knocking sound. I ask him to check it when he replaced the right ball joint but I guess he forgot. My car still have a warranty on it, it does not cover all parts but lots of them. I want to keep it for at least 3 years if possible .... lol
