The front driveshafts have balancers on them, rubber like clamped onto the shaft, maybe they are broken off or moved from place.

How to remove the rear drive shaft from a 2004 dodge ram 1500(not a 2500)

It is fairly straight forward. First block the tires and set the emergency brake. Once you disconnected the shaft the transmission won't hold the truck anymore. A 9/16" socket and a 3/8" drive socket should be all the tools you need. Except maybe a extention and universal adapter to make it a little easier to access. There are 4 bolts that hold the driveshaft to the rear differential. Once you have the bolts out the shaft should come loose. You may need to tap on it a little with a rubber mallet (if it has not been changed before)or if you don't have one, place a 2X4 piece of wood on the shaft as close to the rearend as possible and tap it with a regular hammer. After the shaft falls loose simply pull the shaft toward the rearend and it should slide right out. Be carefull not to let the front end just drop on to the ground as it has splines that you don't want to foul up.

I was driving my 2002 dodge ram 1500 and the driveshaft fell out of the rear differential. The guy at the garage charges me for a whole axl and loses one of my lug nuts, I paid 1500.00 and think I may have...

Hi there
Well in the automotive industry no mechanics want customers coming back with the same problem because if it does, they have to foot the parts and labour on the house. By sounds of it the pin or gears jambed and locked up in the differential and your lucky you didnt get hurt but snapped the axle or driveshaft. That sounds like what happend so they may have got a good replacement one from the wreckers maybe even a drive shaft,,,,, removed your old axle and drive shaft,, and install the one from wrecking yard. Once your in a shop its hard to drive around to get different quotes,,,, so ou have to go with what you feel sounds reasonable,,,, to get it towed elswhere and maybe you would still wouldnt gotten a better deal or maybe you could"ve. make sure you get a warranty and get the oil changers,,, always to check your difff oil each time and if you do hear any grinding in the future pull over and get it checked sometimes we win sometime we loose.Remember when gettting used parts the installer dosent get credit if the parts are bad,, they end up footing the whole bill second time around they were just covering themselves just in case
I would say you didnt loose you actually gained your safe and uninjured once the job is done dont look back look forward and keep an eye on the parts they installed and get a warranty whatever wreckers give them you get also. Safe driving

What does a drive bushing do?

Are you asking about the "drive shaft bushing" or maybe you mean the "flex coupling" or "flex disc" that is in the drive shaft, sometimes called a bushing. Has six bolt holes in it and is made of layered rubber and nylon threads.

It "couples" the output of the transmission via the driveshaft to the rest of the vehicle.9_28_2012_4_50_53_pm.jpg

I have a squeek in the back between the driveshaft and the rear differential what do you think that might be?

Sounds like you need to lubracate your u joints Also check your Carrier bearing when lubeing. Try to turn side to side If you have much slack you need new u joints, If moves up-down may need a new carrier bearring.Best of luck to you.Hope this helps some.

Rear driver wheel has light reubbing noise when car in motion goes away when brakes are engaged. Is this brakes or barrings problem? Cost of repair?

hi this sounds like your brake pads have worn, or the brake shoes as well, if you have drum brakes on the back it will be shoes, if disk brakes will be pads+shoes (inside the disk) if it was the wheel bearing you would hear a loud humming noise not rubbing noise, is it a metallic rubbing noise or a rubber squeaking rubbing noise? just check condition of tyre on back if it is the squeaking rubber noise cost will depend on where you take it and if you do it yourself, possibly $40 to $50 at a garage/auto shop or possibly $20 to $30 if you do it yourself, this just depends ...hope this helps

Loud poping sound when taking off forward and reverse

you have either the ujoints failing, or the front of the driveshaft (slip yoke) is sticking and not sliding in and out like it should. Remove driveshaft, clean & lube with good teflon grease.

On the intermediate shaft. Steering shaft there is a rubber boot where it goes thru the firewall. This rubs, sometimes can be lubed with a silicone spray, sometimes needs the shaft replaced.
