  1. Found out today my new reman ecm is trashed. My old one had a bad processor and SIA said they can't get processors to repair them anymore. That's why I bought a reman from ARES tech only to find out today their lifetime warranty is only on the original unit not the one they send you as replacement. Needless to say I'm losing faith in the truck and ecms. The WTS won't come on, fuel pump won't run, heater grid relays stay on and no communication with a scan tool. PCM even has no communication unless you unplug the ECM. Basically similar to my original symptoms of bad processor. From first day I
  2. I've run into the same thing on other vehicles before
  3. Power braking doesn't really make a difference but it does have to be in gear foot on brakes not moving but turning from left to right or vice versa in tight spaces. Once it pops once ( or twice back to back) it won't pop again no matter how many times you turn the wheel until you change gears, roll a little then turn hard again. Thinking about it I'm leaning toward wheel bearings like one person mentioned. Thinking about it i do occasionally going over rough roads get a sound like my lugnut are loose or sway bar links aren't tight. a metallic clanky noise. It's the only thing I have touched y
  4. Thats what I thought you meant but I wasn't sure. On 2wd there's 2 sets of tie rods with sleeves attached to a bar that's hooked to idler and pitman arm and that whole thing goes side to side
  5. I'm not sure what you mean by taper. I've gone back over everything and double checked all bolt tightness. Like I said it was doing it before the replacement of parts. They had to be replaced to get it into spec after the wreck. I was just hoping the pop would be corrected too. Driving it this week it seems to have become more focused on steering. It'll do it sometimes twice when turning from side to side while the truck isn't rolling but in gear on the brakes
  6. Seems to be related to turning the wheel more than anything
  7. I was thinking wheel bearings. Mine doesn't have a 1 piece hub it's the old style with a spindle and 2 taper bearings
  8. I believe so but this is up front, 2wd truck and I can feel it in the floorboard by the door
  9. It's not when you shift like u joints but after changing to reverse and you start rolling while turned hard you get a loud pop just once. Change to drive and start rolling a foot or 2 and it'll do it again. I had wife power brake and roll a little tried not to run my *** over or take a bath to the face from the air coming out the crank case vent tube on the driver side and we can get it to do it but it can be felt in every component from tie rod bar to control arms not just one area
  10. I've read through here a bit but nobody seems to have my issue. When I turn sharp not full lock trying tj say back out of tight parking lot spaces whenever I change wheel direction or change from drive to reverse then roll a little or give it gas I get a hefty clunk up front. I've had it for 2 years and I've seen some other dodge 2nd gen 1 tons do it but I've seen some not do it so I'm not thinking it's normal but I've tried everything I can think of. It's a 2wd. I had to replace everything from frame out due to RF having been in an accident before so alignment couldn't be brought
  11. Every time I see sagging liner the foam has deteriorated that's the issue. With no foam to attach back you'll make a mess. Getting the liner out and recovering isn't an overly difficult or highly skilled job just pay attention
  12. You can go to the sewing section like at walmart and get some pins and pin it back up I was able to find some sites with WEH numbered fabric but not 2264. I've seen a couple labeled as natural beige but their color palate natural looks more like our trucks than beige. Or they have natural.. And beige but not natural beige
  13. Being an old truck naturally I've got headliner sag and the back was black due to third brake light leakage. Now that I've got it out after finding and fixing the light leak I want to recover the liner. Id like to do charcoal to match interior but I think I'll stick with tan to match the other roof parts. I can get the material on ebay but there's a few of that light tan and I'm not quite sure what exactly it is. Computer doesn't always show color shades exactly right either. Does anybody have any info or links to the exact color to match the visors and overhead compartment
