I have taken this problem to two shops and got completely different
When I am driving down the road in my 2000 3500 Ram Van, and I turn the
steeling wheel just a little to the left, I get a feeling in the steering
wheel like when the road has been scrapped/gouged for resurfacing. Its
sorta subtle and I don't think I hear it, probably because I have some
tire/road noise anyway. It happen when I am going down the road 60-70 MPH
and the road curves a little to the left. It does not happen when steering
to the right. I took it to the dealer and they came up with a cost pretty
high. I was surprised and asked to speak to the mechanic. He admitted that
he was not certain that was the problem, and would need to get into it more
to be certain. Not willing to write them a blank check, I decided to get
another opinion. The second mechanic came up with a completely different
diagnostic that was much cheaper and seem to be more certain. He could not
start on it for a couple of days due to the holidays, so I didn't leave it.
Now I am having second thoughts on him also. It seems that the Dodge
dealers mechanic should have a better insight on what the problem is.
If anyone that works on their truck/van or has an idea what this might be
would reply with their opinion, I would most appreciate it.
and if anyone has had this problem before please let me know what the
I am purposely not saying what the diagnostics were because I don't want
anyone influence by either mechanic. I will post them in a later post.
