SOURCE: is there a recommended way to replace the drivers

For shock removal and replacement is fairly easy -- first remove the top shock nut and then the three nuts on the tower surronding the upper shock nut - then remove the bottom through bolt and pull shock up through the top -- install in reverse order - (don't worry about the shock expanding after you get the bottom bolt back in, you can push the top of the shock down with the tower and secure it). recommend you replace both front shocks

Struts have springs around them that must be removed to get to the replaceable part. Shocks are just by removable with out taking off the springs.

SOURCE: 2001 Ram 3500 Truck: replacing powersteering pump on 1999 dodge 1 ton 3...

it is best to remove the pwr st. pump and vaccum pump assy as a unit which is held to the front cover w/2 15mm head bolt and a support bracket on the bottom bolt next to the block @ the pwr st pump. and disconnect all lines. get the seal kit and replace them @ this time. if you don't and just replace the pump you will probably develop an oil leak where the shaft meshes w/ the adapter.

Just due to the miles, may be a good idea to replace the shocks.
You may also want to look for grease fittings on the suspension and steering (ball joints, tie rods, U joints, etc.) and grease them all. A squeak is very hard to diagnose over the web. What you may try is have a friend bounce on the bumpers while you listen for the squeak. That may help you narrow its location, front right, front left, rear right, rear left. Could be a bushing in a control arm or leaf spring or a metal to metal squeek.

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.

Does the top shock bracket on the front of my 1999 dodge pickup have to be removed to stall new shocks


No it does not, just remove the top and bottm bolts and shock should come out. you may need a jack under the front axle on the side you are removing to hold axle from dropping to low or you can just jack it back up to line up the shock,HERES A PICTURE TO SHOW YOU WHERE TO REMOVE THE TOP NUT AND BOTTM BOLT.51fa116.jpg
