There are no grease nipples to grease on a Ram truck. I would ask the service department to show you what you had greased.

The only thing I can see that they greased was your wallet. Definitely switch dealers for any other service.

As far as I know you cant get a ball joint for the new rams. You have to replace the whole control arm. I'm in the same situation with 60k miles on mine. The dealer wants around $400 for a lower arm.

They probably put fluid film on the sway bar links. They squeak sometimes
"There, greased the front end"


It's a chess game with service departments trying to figure out when they're full of it

Im having the same problem right now with a knocking, creaking noise coming from the front of my truck. I just put a adjustable 5100s on the front and leveled it 2". When I installed them, I also got an alignment and it hasn't even been 5000 miles. Any ideas on what it could be coming from? I've jacked the truck up and shook everything I can get my hands on...still nothing. You would think when they did the alignment, that they would of checked the tire rod ends and ball joints.

Another reason I went to the 2500 to get away from so many moving parts. I know that the ball joints can fail in a solid axle but, it usually takes longer as they only move in 1 plane instead of multiple. Unless you get silly with tire size!
