Default Howl sound?

My 2010 5.7L RAM makes a howl sound when travelling 90-105km/h. I have a MOPAR CAI installed but it never howled before. I thought maybe the shitty stock Good-Years were causing it but it only seems to do it when I press on the accelerator, If i coast at that speed its quiet. What do ya think?

Primo has it, generally a howl under acceleration is the pinion riding up the crown. Get it to the dealer and get it looked at.

Mine howels terrible and getting worse, dealer told me to wait until it blows.(thats just lame if you ask me, how about fixing it so it dosent leave me friggin stranded...!!!!) He told me if he tried to fix it, it would likely end up howeling worse. That told me one thing right then an there...., these dealers dont have anyone anymore that can set up a differential correctly. So i told the so called tech, "if you cant 100% fix it right now, why would i want you to even touch it later" I am soooooo frustrated with these dealerships that you dont even know.

Sorry about the delay. Yes it does sound like your howl in your vid Oregon. Well looooong story short. Dealership first said it was the rear diff and that they were going to rebuild it with a new bearing kit. They had it for 2 days, as soon as I took it on the hwy right after picking it up guess what? Still howls, even worse now.... So I went back and gave them a piece of my mind. They looked at it again and claimed it is the front diff now. Said the bearing seals are shot and that they are gunna rebuild the front now. Supposed to get her back today so I guess I'll wait and see how their grasping at straws technique worked... Sad really. Chrysler Canada is going to be getting an email from me detailing how this dealership has treated me an inconvenienced me, horrible customer service. Nobody takes pride in anything anymore, what a sad world.
