1st remove the tire sucure with a jack stand (2) you will need to remove the brake calliper (3) there it a dust cover that must be removed big plyers will do (4) remove cotter pin then remove the nut there is a washer and a bearing next if they won't come out just grab the rotor and **** it from one side and they will ; the rotor and the hub are one if it still will not come off pry two sides at the same time and make it come off

How do I get rotors off a 95 Dodge ram 2500 4X4


First off, don't expect them to just fall off after removing the large nut in the center of the hub. I tried that. Granted, the nut does need to come off, but, after removing the caliper, there's four more bolts that come in from the backside that also need to be removed. This then allows you to remove the front spindle, hub, and rotor as an assembly. Watch your toes! Also note how the dust shield is sandwiched in amongst all of this. Once this assembly is off, the wheel studs can be driven out with a hydraulic press (no small feat), and the rotor falls away from the hub

On my 97" Suburban do


It depends. For a regular 1/2 ton and most 3/4 tons no, just remove the caliper and the rotor comes off over the wheel bearing hub. 1 ton suburbans, require more work, you will require a large socket to remove the axle nut, and a slide hammer or 3 jaw puller big enough to pull off the rotor and wheel bearing as an assembly. The rotor on some 3/4 tons and all 1 tons bolt from behind thru the wheel bearing and need to be removed together. The wheel bearing has to be unbolted from the spindle, then the wheel studs have to be punched thru to remove the rotor. The splines on the wheel studs hold the rotor to the wheel bearing. 1 ton will say 3500 on the side, 2500 for 3/4 ton and 1500 for 1/2 tons.

1996 geo metro, passenger side half shaft (CV joint) Shaft and ball joint shaft stuck in spindle unit. Tried lube and a wheele puller, any good ideas??


i use a 3 arm puller to force the shaft out of the hub spline (do not hammer on the cv shaft at all, you will destroy it), and either a pickle fork or a specialy designed ball joint puller to seperate the balljoint from the knuckle. if you dont have a special puller and need to save the balljoint. try using a 6 or 8 foot steel bar to pry down on the lower control arm while another person strikes the knuckle at the balljoint location. note pin retainer type balljoints have a small slot which can be spread open alittle with a cold cut chisel or larg screw driver once the cv shaft is out of the way

2001 Dodge 2500 Front Hub Assembly removal


Get a Haynes book for your model truck for less than $20.00. It has pictures and written directions. It is easy to do.

It is foolish to work on your truck without a service manual. You can order one on the internet or go to a Strauss or Pep Boys store,

2001 ram 2500 how to remove the wheel hub assembly


Remove tire. Remove caliper and caliper holder. Remove rotor. Using a 36 MM socket remove center nut and slide hub off spindle. If hub does not come off freely use wheel puller to remove hub.Loosen front wheel lug nuts. Jack up and support front of truck with jack stands ( put them in the middle so both you can get to both sides of the truck). Remove tire, Remove caliper and caliper holder. romove rotor ( I had to use a 2x4 wedged between rotor and lower controll arm rubber stoper. then started truck and turned the wheel right or left to pop rotor free). remove 3 bolts that hold hub to knuckle. on the next step I used a steel pipe about 1 1/2 foot i think about 2 inches in diamater. wedge it between lower controll arm rubber stoper. then start truck turn the wheel left or right to let power steering pump do the work. It poped it off easy for me both sides in less than 1 hour. put alot of anti seize on the new hubs and bolts in case you have to replace them again. use a torque wrench to tighten all bolts. Great time to replace brakes as long as you are in the area. hope this helps.

Do i need special tools to replace front hub assy. on 2005 ram 1500 2wd?


the fact that it is a 2wd is a plus, chances are that you should be able to get it with standard home mechanics tools, IE: 6 pt sockets an extension and so forth, sometimes though the hubs become stuck and you need a puller ussually a slide hammer (dent puller) and a adapter that you should be able to rent from most auto parts stores like kragens or napa, for a few bucks.hope this helps. honestly though that its a 2wd it will most likely be a piece of cake, 4wd is where you start getting tricky. good luck.

1999 Dodge RAM 2500 drums won't come off


Well, I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD with rear drum brakes and I tried to buy a puller to get them off. Couldn't find one anywhere. I welded one together with some scrap steel and a stearing wheel puller bolted to the top. I was supprised it worked so well. There not easy to beat off. All that is required is sufficient force to move them. Once there loose the rest is easy.

Can not get hub or disc off of front axle to replace disc


You can try two options. First is beat it until it comes off, this usually leads to the hub assembly coming with it and pieces everywhere. Then you have to replace both. The other is to find a puller that attaches over the studs and presses in on the hub assembly at the same time. Be careful though there are two or four bolts on the back side that if not removed will also tear up the hub assembly. Either way after the first side you will have it figured out for the second. Don't forget to use plenty of PB blaster.
