Locate a tool called a "Chassis Ear". It is a piece of equipment issued to all Chrysler dealers but many mechanics have never seen one or even heard of it. It is a set of six microphones that are plugged into a receiver in the car. You listen with head phones and switch between the microphones while driving the car. By moving the mics around, you can zero in on the source of the noise.
The older model has six wired mics. There is a newer model that uses four wireless mics and two with wires. If you can't find this tool, I'll find the link on the Mac Tools web site.
