Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Whinning noise in rear end
A whinning noise while turning is an indication of a worn bearing. The extra pressure put against the bearing/race during the turn and the closing of a gap creates this noise.I would chech the axle bearings on the side of the truck on the outside the curve when you hear it. What I'm saying is if you hear it when you turn left....check the right side bearing

Not terrible of a job to do. You will have to jack up the rear end and support it on stands and be sure to chock the front wheel so it does not roll forward while jacking it up. Remove the rear wheels and the drum assembly or rotor if disc brakes. Remove the rear differential cover be sure to have a drain pan to catch the fluid that comes out of it. Find the center carrier you will see a pin about 3/4 of inch in diameter going throught the center carrier with a bolt on one end remove the bolt turn chunk until pin comes out. Push the axle in enough to let the c-clip to be removed then pull out the axle. You will then have access to the axle seal and axle bearing. You will probably need a bearing puller with slide hammer to get bearing out. Then put back together.

Testimonial: "This is very helpful for someone that knows very little about changing wheel bearings. Thanks a lot."
Thank you for getting back to me. I would like you to check your transmission fluid. start the engine and let it warm up at idle speed for about 15 min and check the fluid. It sounds like you do not have enough in it, there for the whining noise with increase of speed since your transmission is speeding up with the rate of your vehicle. If this does not help and the problem persist please let me know. If the noise you were hearing was coming from the u joints of the vehicle it would not make a whining noise with increase of speed. The u joints will only make a noise when they are going bad when the vehicle is shifted into any gear from the shifter( EX: park to drive, park to reverse ECT.)
