What was the result of the rubbing noise?? If your rear differential was replaced, FILE A COMPLAINT!! It's a widespread problem that needs correct attention.

Call 1 888 327 4236
or
www.nhtsa.dot.gov

It has to be stopped!

Hey there, i realize this comment is kind of late but, to add fluid there will be a rubber plug on the rear differential cover on the right side. Pull that off and add fluid till the level is right below the fill hole. If your hearing noises like that while turning you need to add Limited Slip Additive. Or else youll ruin it. You can buy the additive from any auto parts store. Just ask the people who work there or something. That will make your noises go away.

Jason, I get the feeling nobody understands what you are talking about as far as this noise. I believe my Durango makes the same sound. Is it like a whirring that pulsates in and out when you make a sharp turn like as if you are driving slowly in a parking lot?

I see you posted in September. Did you ever get this resolved?

my 2002 durango has been making that noise. service depart checked it said it was probably the tires. same noise at low speed in the parking lot. rear differential just shattered into pieces and took abs sensor with it. truck only has 50,000 miles on it. called chrysler customer service, they said too bad, not doing anything for it. last time chrysler will ever see any of my money.

My 2000 Durango has been making the same sounds while turning right or left. It started when we were making U turns and then progressed to making right or left turns.
Has anyone gotten it fixed?
What was wrong?
How much did it cost?

I been hearing alot of trounles with these dodge rear end making a humming noise. My 2000 Durango is making that same noise we took the rear end apart thinking it just needed grease. There is a washer in there that was broke and no replacement part available. Is there a recall on this issue cause there should be. I now have to shop for a differential and thats not cheep. I had a 98 4x4 durango and never had an issue except for the abs brake system.

Thanks lee! Our 2000 durango just started that same exact noise. shop said it is the tires - my ? is why all of a sudden? The other "bucket of bolts" sound from the rear is reported as needing a new rear differential @$1150. Just had it 'serviced' on 9/21 & they put Delo Syn 80W140 in. Checking to see if that was correct.
Don't know if Dan @ AOL on 6/28/09 got an answer or not to the washer recall question. I just checked recalls & don't see anything. I guess its only a $ thing & not safety so there is no recall.

Definitely sounds like wheel bearings getting dry and going bad. I am also replacing mine this weekend (just one, had the other one done a while back, should have done them both then!). www.1aauto.com has the best prices I could find for the DIY'ers. I'll post back when it eliminates the whurring noise.

Just finished changing the wheel bearing. Pretty simple job. Recommend lot's of penetrating oil and some big wrenches. Only cost me the $76 for the bearing/hub assembly compared to the dealers $399 quote. Took care of the monster truck tire noise.
