i just did a 2002 2500 4x4 with a dana straight axle and had no problem getting on the bolts with a 9/16 12 point socket on a 6 inch extension. If you do not use an extension the head of the ratchet will hit the yoke of the axle shaft.

A lot of heat (glowing if possible), and heavy air impact. I've never been able to break one without air impact, and sometimes have had to use a lot of heat as well.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4WD need to change Shocks/Struts? Is this a diy project?


It should be. To replace the front shocks, there are two bottom bolts to remove and one nut on the top of the shock. The rears have one top bolt and one bottom bolt. Just regular tools should be fine to do the job. I would also use some WD-40 to help loosen any rusty bolts.

Replace front passenger side u-joint on 4x4 drive axil


The wheels have to be removed, along with the brake calipers. There are four bolts that hold the unit hub bearing onto the front knuckles. The hubs have a very tight tolerance area that fits into the knuckle.
Sometimes the hub siezes into the knuckle and this is where the labor and parts can pile up. What makes this even more difficult is that the brake rotor can only be removed after the hub is knocked out of the knuckle, so it all has to come out as an assembley.

There is a nut in the middle of the hub. That nut is on the end of the axle stub, which passes through the hub bearing. If they make good time getting the hub and all out, they can still get stuck trying to get the stub shaft out of the hub. And it will have to come out to get the U joint out. Replacing the U joints should be straight forward.

I need to replace the starter on my 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd 5.9l


Easy fix my friend.

1. Unhook the battery
2. Raise and support the truck on jack stands.
3. The starter is located on the drivers side at the front of the tranny.
4. Grab an 8mm and a 13mm wrench.
5. Remove the power wires from the starter.
6. Remove the starter by removing the top bolt 9/16 i believe and the bottom nut. Also 9/16 or 5/8.
7. Carefully slide it out toward the front of the engine.
8. Installation is the same as removal.

Hope this helps.

How do I get the axles out of a Dodge Ram 1500 4WD?


Remove the hub/bearing assemblies and the axles will pull right out. 3 bolts (12 point bolts) hold each bearing to the knuckle, and the bearings may be frozen into the knuckles - this can be a problem and you may need the assistance of a pro if you can't get them out.

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
