    I found it, its a small hole on the yoke to the front drive shaft, it takes a special needle adapter for a grease gun. Its very difficult to find, and alot of mechanics didnt even know about this grease point on 05 4x4 dodges and up.

If there is no fitting it is a "sealed" joint... either drill out a hole in the end and add a fitting for grease.... or when it fails replace it with one that has a fitting. i believe most hardware stores stock grease fittings

How do i remove left front axle from a 1993 mercury topaz


  • 3 Jack up the vehicle using the designated jack points. Then place the jack stands under the pinch welds in the front of the vehicle and lower the vehicle onto the vehicle.
  • 4 Finish loosening the lug nuts and remove the wheel.
  • 5 Loosen the spindle nut using the spindle nut socket attachment on your impact wrench.
  • 6 Loosen and remove the top and bottom bolts on the brake caliper and secure it to the coil springs using the zip ties.
  • 7 Remove the brake rotor. To do this, simply pull the rotor straight off the hub assembly.
  • 8 Separate the lower control arm from the damper fork.
  • 9 Pull the cotter pin out of the bolt holding the lower control arm to the steering knuckle. To do this, you'll need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
  • 10 Loosen the bolt holding the lower control arm to the steering knuckle. You'll need to use the tie-rod end puller to do this correctly.
  • 11 Swing the hub and steering knuckle out of the way. You will need to simultaneously negotiate the end of the half shaft out of the hub assembly while getting the hub and steering knuckle out of the way.
  • 12 Pry the half shaft out of the transmission using a flat-head screwdriver. You will need to place the screwdriver tip in between the shaft and the transmission and rotate the screwdriver back and forth, and the shaft will pop out of the transmission.
  • 13 Insert the new half shaft. Make sure that you are inserting the end of the shaft with the retaining ring into the transmission housing. This ring is a "snap ring," meaning that when the shaft is properly inserted and secure, you will hear an audible "snap." Use hard grease to get the snap ring to "float" in the middle of the groove, where it sits on the end of the shaft. Then insert the shaft. If you do not use hard grease to center the ring on the groove, you will not be able to insert the shaft all the way into the transmission.
  • 14 Reassemble the hub assembly and steering knuckle, and put the wheel back on. This will be the reverse of removal.
  • 15 Tighten the lug nuts, lower the vehicle to the ground and do a final torqueicon1.png on the lug nuts to 100 ft-lb.

How to replace the passenger control arm on the 2006 suzuki grand vitara


Most front ends are set up basically the same way.First raise and support your front end and remove the tire.Both the upper and lower should look about the same.If you look at the control arm you will have an upper and lower ball joint and a tie rod end bolted to the steering knuckle.Remove the bolt on the tie rod end and use a ball joint separate to remove the tie rod end.Then remove the ball joint from the steering knuckle with your separator.Depending on which control arm it is if its the upper you will also have to remove the brake hose out of the way to remove the upper control arm.Once that's done you will see 2 bolts that hold the control arms to the frame remove these bolts and your control arm will come off,You might have to pry them a little bit to get them out.You also want to have something handy to block up your steering knuckle until your ready to put it back together.It wouldn't hurt to have a piece of wire just in case you need to tie something in place.And be sure you grease everything with a high pressure grease.

Are there front-end grease joints that need lube periodically or are they sealed and don't require fresh grease?


There are places to lubricate the joints and such in the front end. The ball joints certainly have lube points if nothing else does. Anything that could be metal to metal contact needs periodic lubrication. Check your owners manual for Lubrication types. Most are using a molediumdysulfide based lubricant in the newer vehicles. It is easily available at Walmart and most auto parts stores. Just don't use a graphite based Lube unless it is specifically called for. If your owners manual is short on information on this you should pick up a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. It will specify lube points and intervals and what type of lubrication to use.

Remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram


That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

  7. Remove the front brake hose fitting bolt completely, then remove the caliper with the pads installed as an assembly. Take care not to drip fluid onto the pad surfaces.
  8. Cover the open end of the front brake hose fitting to prevent dirt entry.
To install:
  1. Clean the caliper and steering knuckle sliding surfaces with a wire brush. Then, apply a coat of Mopar® multi-mileage grease or equivalent.
  2. Lubricate the caliper mounting bolts, collars, bushings and bores with Dow 111® or GE 661® silicone grease or equivalent.
  3. Install the caliper over the rotor and seat it in its original position until flush.
  4. Install the mounting bolts by hand, then tighten them to 38 ft. lbs. (51 Nm) on 2001–02 models; 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm) on 2003–05 models.
  5. Attach the brake hose, using new washers, and torque the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  6. Install the wheels.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Pump the brakes several times to seat the pads.
