I have a '06 durango 4x4 that has a howling noise coming from the front brakes when driving. This is not the squeal you get when the brakes are worn. When I step on the brake pedal it goes away. Could this be a piston problem in the caliper or?

A howling noise usually means a bad wheel bearing.

Saw this site on another forum    punched in your info and it said:About this Repair: Front Wheel Bearing Replacement for your 2006 Dodge Durango
What to watch out for

   * The parts for the Front Wheel Bearing Replacement service on your Dodge Durango tend to have a wide range in prices, even for parts of similar quality. You may benefit from checking around to compare the prices at different shops.



     All related wheel bearing seals should also be replaced.

Why this happens


     Failing wheel bearings can cause a "rumbling" noise while turning and while driving at speeds greater than 15 miles an hour.


     Wheel bearings need to be replaced if they are found to be worn or leaking during related repairs or inspections.

Did you ever figure out what this problem was?  I am having the same problem with my 06 Durango.
