    i had similar problem with the pinion bearings and seal bad too. I replaced all bearings and seals with no leaks. The differential was put back in with all the teeth matching up properly (or least seems proper). When i drive the truck now, when accelerating a grinding and high pitched squeal is noticed. When left off accelerator the squeal calms down, but a metal grind is still present. I pulled the cover off and found the fluid to be full of metal flake, like glitter, but cannot find any metal on metal contact. No scratches or gouges in the teeth, housing, or the bearings and no new leaks. Does the two adjusters rings on either side of the differential bearings help align the differential and the pinion and if so where or how can i find and fix that. Thank you for any help.

If i assume this is a 9 and 1/2 chrysler rearend...take the rear differential cover off..remove the screw tht holds the pin that passes through the spider gears then remove the pin. push the axle shafts inward til the c clips can be removed then slide the shafts out. you will need a bearing puller to remove the bearing and seal

Can not get the cage off of the rear end of a dodge ram 2001 1500 2 wheel drive


If you have the rear differental housing cover, if you check the center of the 3rd member housing ,you will locate a shaft that runs through the center of the housing ,that has the spider gears at the top and bottom. That shaft is held in with a small bolt on the side [5/16 wrench to remove] ..Once the bolt is removed, position the 3rd member to let the
shaft fall out. Once the shaft is removed try to keep from turning the 3rd member or the spiders will fall out...Go to each wheel and push in on the out side of the wheel axle to remove the "C" clip inside the 3rd member and slade axle back to clear third member . Repeat the same on the other axle and that should allow you to remove the third member after the 4 bolts are
removed on the side bearings. Let me know if that helps

On my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 2WD, I just found


This is a very simple job to do. Raise the front of truck off the ground,block the rear tires. Using pliers and a hammer,remove the grease cap from hub. Remove the cotter key and nut from axle,pull out slowly and remove outer bearing. then remove hub from axle. To remove inner bearing ,prop hub on a board and use a large punch to drive out bearing and seal. Clean out inside the hub and install new bearing and seal. Replace all parts in the reverse as you took them off. Hope this will help you.

How do i remove the rear axels on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 3.6 v8


this is for front axle removing.you have too take off the wheel then the brakes, then you have to remove the 3 bolts on the back of the wheel assembly and lightly take a mallet and tap the wheel assembely out. and it all just pulls out after that. ------------- for rear axle . for the axle shaft,jack the rear of the truck up take off the wheels and brake drums.make sure truck is securly supported with jackstands.remove the differental cover locate the bolt that holds the cross pin in the carrier.remove the bolt,slide out the cross pin.push the axle in towards the center and remove the c-clip holding the axle in.remove the axle shaft carefully so not to damage the bearings or seal. ----------- You need to remove a bolt inline with the axles on the spider gears which holds the center pin in place. Remove the pin, rotate the spider gears to the other side. Now move the axles inward to reveal the c-clips and use a hemostat to remove. Of course the the truck is up on jacks with the tires removed. this will help.
