SQUEAKING NOISE ON 1500 5.4 LARAMIE

2001 Dodge Ram • V8 4WD Automatic • 92,000 miles

When in drive I get a squeak or warble noise. It is more noticable when I hit bumps. Yet it does not make noies when I put it in nuetral or in 2. It is an automatic. Coming from the front. U-joint, sway bars, shocks and right front ball joint all replaced in last 2 years. Any ideas? Could it be something in the shift linkage?

If it is more noticable when you hit bumps, it doesn't sound transmission related. Check to make sure the shocks bushings are in good condition. Also, check the tracking bar bushings sway bar, and control arm bushings. Finally, check the rear u-joints. My first guess is either the tracking arm bushings or swaybar bushings.
