You must remove the ring gear and pinion gear to replace the bearings, it is a big job and requires special tools like bearing race drivers and a hydraulic press

What are some tips on removing and replacing brake lines etc when replacing the rear end on 97 Dodge 1500


Held on by a bolt and two clips. Bend the clips and remove the bolt. Just be prepared to replace them if they are really rusty. If it were mine, I would pull the axles, Replace the diff and pinion and seal. Replace the axle bearings and seals, if the seals were leaking. If not leaking, just replace the seals.

Rear wheel bearings are shot. How do I pull the shaft out?


You'll have to take the back cover off the rear end and drain off the gear lube. Inside you'll see the ring gear and in front is the pinion gear. Inside the housing of the ring gear you'll see small spider gears. These spider gears run on a gear that is on the end of the axle. The end of the axle will have a C-clip or some kind of retainer. When you get the retaining divice out and the bolts out that hold the bearing housing on the vacuum plate, the bearing and axle should pull out.

Front and back berring dissassembly of differential 2001 dodge 1500


For the rear diff., remove the driveshaft, brake drums, diff. cover, remove pinion flange nut, move diff carrier to access side gear retainer bolt and remove bolt, slide side gear pin out and push axles in to remove axle retainers and remove axels. Mark carrier bearing retainers, spin bearing retainers to loosen carrier for removal. Remove carrier, remove pinion out of diff case, then r&r bearings. Any shims should be replaced in their original location for depth and pinion to ring contact.

Rear axle noise. pinion bearing? do i need to reset pinion and ringgear if need to replace?


possibly bearings. but i wouldnt drive it till you check it out cause if its just the bearings you could possibly save the ring and pinion. it could be the ring and pinion and if it is you will need to either replace or rebuild the rear end.

2002 dodge 1500 rear end making whining nosie


This could be one of several problems: If the noise increases with speed, and you are only hearing it from the rear differential and not the transmission, it could be the rear differential carrier bearings, or rear axle bearings going bad. If you are only hearing the noise upon acceleration or deceleration, the rear differential ring and/or pinion gears may be going bad and the rear differential will need an overhaul. You'll have to get the rear wheels off the ground and see if you can pinpoint the location of the noise with something such as a stethoscope. If it's coming from the rear differential, you'll need to pull the bolts and the cover to determine if the gears are still in good shape, or if there is any pitting. Same with the carrier bearings; if you see pitting/ discoloration, they'll need replacement. If the noise is coming from one side towards the end of the axle shaft near the wheel, it's most likely a axle bearing going bad, and you'll need to pull the wheels, remove the diff. cover to release the C clip which holds the rear axle in place at the differential, and pull the axle out. You also need a special tool with a slide hammer to remove the axle bearing and seal.

Whinning noise in rear end on 99 dodge ram truck. Where can I find information to possibly replace rear bearings??


Not terrible of a job to do. You will have to jack up the rear end and support it on stands and be sure to chock the front wheel so it does not roll forward while jacking it up. Remove the rear wheels and the drum assembly or rotor if disc brakes. Remove the rear differential cover be sure to have a drain pan to catch the fluid that comes out of it. Find the center carrier you will see a pin about 3/4 of inch in diameter going throught the center carrier with a bolt on one end remove the bolt turn chunk until pin comes out. Push the axle in enough to let the c-clip to be removed then pull out the axle. You will then have access to the axle seal and axle bearing. You will probably need a bearing puller with slide hammer to get bearing out. Then put back together.

Rear end spitting gear oil out the yoke is this a simple pinion bearing problem. Just bought the truck and when I took it down the road for the first time I found problem by loud gurring sound coming from...


Sounds like the pinion bearing is shot, and its not a easy fix, as the rearend has to be taken apart to replace the bearing. Unless you have done one before and you got all the tools and a dial indicator to set everything back up to specks, its best to have a shop thats done this kind of job before to do it for you. In the long run its the cheapest way out.
