Default Motorhead/ mechanic question???

PFF'ers, got a 98 durango, I know thats my first problem, but im hearing a grinding noise come from i believe the rear of the vehicle, not sure of what side. The noise only happens at very slow speeds, not much more than idle speed and goes away when the brakes are applied. Goes away with acceleration and comes on when reaching slow deceleration speed, once again 5-10 mph. What do you guys think??? Truck runs and drives great at normal speed.

Probably noise from a worn differential. Jeep Grand Cherokee are notorious for it. If this is the case, the only thing you can do is to rebuild the rear end or wait till it becomes a "clunk" sound. Then rebuild.

When was the last time you checked your brakes?

Exactly, Is it disc brakes? Sometimes when the disc pads wear down to a point they will touch the rotors due 2 to much play & stop once brakes are applied. Also check wheel bearings for play. Is the suspension rusty? rust can cause noises also when a piece of rust disslodges.
