Front end question

4 posts in this topic

01 Durango that is anxious to go hunting this weekend. Part of me thinks that I am hyper sensitive knowing that the brakes need to be replaced soon, but after deer season. I seem to feel a vibration or something at low speeds, seems to come from the front L tire/front end more to the left, no sounds just something coming through at low speed both on acceleration and braking/coasting to lower speeds. The vibration/sensation is felt thru the gas pedal, I don't feel anything thru the steering wheel or when I brake. Is there any sort of simple thing I can do once I have it jacked up to tell me if I have any sort of problem or am just crazy. Thanks

The first thing I would do is rotate the tires. It is quite possible that the tires are cupped from worn front end parts. The Durango is no stranger to ball joint issues/wheel bearings.

Ok, I'll start there, I suppose they are close to rotating time, has been just under 5K since I last did

I would second a rotate.

It might not be a worn put, but just normal wear from a 4x4 rear wheel drive SUV on the front end. Like Jer said, check the front end though.

They recommend to rotate every 6,000k (every other oil change) to help against cupping.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
