1998 quad cab 4x4 half ton 5.9 ltr.128560 miles
Hello have had this issue for some months now,have had it gone over by
several machanics,still no one can find the problem.
When coming to a stop, at the point of stopping,at rest , I get a loud
metal popping noise,and it is quite loud, when releasing the brakes it
does it again taking off. That is only when it does it and no noise
going down the road at all, but somtimes I think I can feel it in the
pedal, and sometimes not, but in the rain,it wont do this. Have had it
in the air, wheels off can turn the rotor back and forth a little,and
can get it to do it but not as bad. Question is, is it the rotors?
calipers? the ujoints in the shaft from transfer case to front diff?
Everything else checks out fine, and has all new ball joints,and those
was rechecked,and the wheel bearings were checked and those are ok.Even
went to my trans shop,and the trans and transfer case is fine, and they
couldnt figure it out either, and they just work on Dodge products. No
play in the wheel,alignment is ok,no wondering.
Just perplexed with this.I know I have rotors,pads coming up, but it was
doing this way before.
Any ideas, suggestions?? Thank you for your time.
