    I almost bought a Titan before I got my Suburban. The very poor gas mileage was the deal killer. :dunno:

    My friend has a similar lemon truck. Dodge 08 ram, 60,000 miles, 4.7 quad cab. 2wd with factory 20's, never seen dirt.

    Had to replace all balljoints because they were completely worn, replaced rack and pinion, and did the rotors and pads while I was under there. The wheel bearings need changing bad too, they scream going down the road.

    Well today he brought it to me, said it was making a horrible squeal when he turns the wheels side to side.

    Got under it and couldn't pinpoint it, but while I was under there I noticed the rack and pinion leaking, the transmission cooler leaking, and a caliper hose dripping. :facepalm:

    Went ahead and greased the hell out of the upper balljoints and bam, no more squeal. So that was an easy fix, but he's not happy with the truck.

    Said he brought it to a dealership the other day to trade in on a diesel they had that he wanted.... They only wanted to give him $5,000 bucks lol.

    It's too bad because it's a nice truck but it just eats parts for some reason.

    I've never heard a good thing about a Titan. Though, half of what I know about them comes from Jim and Brian! :jester:

    yea i greased my upper and lower balljoints today and as we filled them i watched the truck raise they were so low. i hate them not having grease fittings anymore. lol. it rides somewhat better but still making a horrible noise.

    Titan actually not looks bad, but its fuel consumption is not fair. And some ricers still complain about Chevy and Dodge OHV V8s...
