    Story: I went over a snow bank about 2 feet tall at around 5 mph. Is there a chance that I could have done some damage.

    Problems: Slow turning I get a creaking sound in Drive and Reverse. At speeds above ~15 mph I don't get the sound.

    Please Help!

    prolly just ice and snow packed up underneath my truck had a terrible vib for a little while cause i was doing the same thing playing in deep snow. you have two choices ignore it wait till it melts or get under there with a hose and see if its still there.

    My truck seems to make more suspension noise the colder it gets.

    I had a feeling it might be that but I thought that the ice would have melted after like 5-6 hours. I did it two days ago but it only got above freezing today.

    According to the owners manual word for word it states:


    "Four-wheel drive models-In cold temperature, noise may occur when driving in two-wheel drive before the transfer case is warmed up. Therefore, first drive in four-wheel drive until transfer case is warmed up."

    Most of the people who have been complaining about noise/vibes from their trucks have all said its worse when cold. maybe its nothing to do with the front diff and its in the transfer case.
