I need your help.....
I cant take it anymore! This is off topic, but I know some of you guys drive dodge rams or work on them....so i beg for your help...
I have a 98 Ram 1500 quad cab 4x4 sport. I bought it new, and its got about 65000 miles now. I am anal about maintenance. everything is way ahead of schedule.
My problem is i have this chatter thats driving me nucking futs. Its in the cab, on the drivers side. It appears to be somewhere between the door and the steering wheel, but I cant put my finger on it. I have torn the entire dash (what a bihtch it was in this truck too!) and couldnt find anything. I have RS9000s on the truck, and set on 1, soft, its fairly occasional, but handling a lil too smooshy for my sporty driving. I put them on any stiffer setting and the noise is constant, NJ roads arent known for their smoothness. The noise is a chatter, almost a rattle. it is a consistent noise, it doesnt get louder or softer, its the SAME noise all the time, but the stiffer i set the shocks, or the more bumpy the road, themore often the sound. I have taken the weatherstripping out, the dash, the carpeting, driven with the door open, everything. I have also checked outside the cab and nothing. I took off the plastic cover for the wipers and nothing there.
This noise is drivingmu UP the wall...mostly because I cant FIND it! Its to the point where I'm about to pay the Dodge dealer the $90 an hour they get just to fix the damn thing. I've had enough,
I WILL TAKE ANY SUGGESTIONS OR IDEAS AT THIS POINT, aside from getting rid of the truck. NO I CANNOT LIVE WITH IT...its this constant horribly annoying noise, enough to drive anyone nuts.
