wondering if anyone has had this problem or if u have any info? I have a new 2012 ram with 2000kms and love the truck. A few times i have noticed a noise in my passenger side front end. If I'm on a rough section of paved road(bumpy) i hear almost a clunking sound like metal on metal. any smaller bumps i will not notice it at all just when there are a few together. I drive like an old man my wife say's and am very easy on the truck. Wondering if it could be a ball joint already? Or maybe suspension related. My buddy said seems like something is loose, like two parts are hitting when I hit a bigger bump, or like something wasn"t tightened at the factory!!!!! I will get it checked out at the dealership just didn't know if it should be a worry til then. 90% of the bumps i do not hear it,or if i slow down to 10-15kms I will never hear the noise. Thanks guys!!

I believe they fixed it by bringing it in to the dealer and they tightened every bolt in the suspension and it when away... I remember reading the thread but I can't remember who it was or what it was titled....

The thread i read from a few weeks ago..

I think my 2012 is doing the same, after about 1000kms it feels like my gas pedal shakes.. and i can feel vibrations through the gas pedal.

Sighless,

Sorry to hear about your concerns with the vibration in the gas pedal. I would recommend contacting your local Chrysler Canada service department; they have the latest diagnostic equipment and will be able to review your concerns.

If you'd like any further assistance or have any other questions feel free to PM me.

It is sometimes difficult to determine if there is a problem with the vehicle when there is an intermittent concern. I'm glad to hear you're taking it to your dealer, they have factory trained technicians to address your concerns and put your mind at ease.

If you’d like me to assist you with booking an appointment, you can PM me your VIN# and the name of your Chrysler Canada dealer.

I have a 2012 sport mine has a little viabration in the gas pedal as well. I noticed after that it was only on rough pavement. When i would hit smooth pavement it would go away..........was told that the 20" tires are mostly to blame . please let me know what u find out.

My first issue with my 04 was the power steering pressure line was vibrating, caused an odd feel to truck and it would only do it in take off from a quick stop sign and go, not all the time, a medium to long stop light it'd never happen. After 3 or 4 visits to dealer and a new hose, it finally went away.

I have a '12 1500 Sport QC with 2100 Miles on it and its been doing this for at least 1000 miles

Check the tire tools under passenger seat. Mine loosened up once and the clacking drove me crazy for about 2 weeks before I realized the tool set and jack were loose.

any updates on this? My front end seems to chatter and clank a bit, and I just rolled over 2500 miles. I can hear it banging around when im going over bumps in the road. Sucks because its making noise like its a 5 year old truck and its only 2 months old

Great Post, unfortunately same concern. I have a 2012 4x4 crew cab with only 1200 miles on it, babied as well in town driving, I now have a crackling sound or metal on metal type noise in the passenger-side front end when i go over larger bumps. It just started happening, never did it until now. i just saw the posts and have the exact same concern. Wondering if you ever took it to the dealership and found anything out? Any information would be very helpful. Thanks.

I also have this problem. Seems to happen more at slow speed while turning. But have noticed that it also chatters on small bumps in a row. Think I may make an appt to get this and a few other things looked at. Truck is only 4 months old.
