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?

thanks

A howling noise usually means a bad wheel bearing.

Hey
Saw this site on another forum    http://repairpal.com/estimator    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.

Recommendations

   *

     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.
