i have a 96 eddie bauer, with a dana 44 front axle. sounds like maybe ring a pinion grinding when braking. have had both ends apart many times and found no wear. could the ring and pinion be going out, or some other part in the axle. with the front driveshaft back in, it sometimes makes a more violent sounding gear grind until something goes back into place. sry i don't know how to explain it better then that. thx does that sound familier to anyone?
