At 32,000 we had severe shaking while applying brakes. We took our truck in to have it looked at, shop said that front brake rotors were bad and had to be replaced, they could not be turned. Had them both replaced with after market rotors. A/C clutch assy replaced at 39000, at 40000 miles we noticed a groaning and sqeaking noise coming from the drivers front wheel when exiting the vehicle, and noticed an oily substance on driveway under truck. We had both problems looked at, found 4 bad ball joints 1 needs replacing imediately, also rack and pinion seals are bad. Est. $1700 to repair joints and rack. Ball joints are sealed and cannot be greased, they should last alot longer than 40000 miles.

problem #1

Durango 4WD

Driving on wet, snowy road at 40 mph. My car swerved violently to the right and into an embankment. Have had repeated brake problems with brake rotor warping in the past. After the accident and repair, the car developed violent vibtration in front end. Repair shop diagnosed bad front wheel bearings. Repair shop informed me that replacement parts are on "national back order" with 600+waiting list. Appears to be yet another design flaw which may well have contributed to my accident and loss of vehicle control.
