How do you remove upper ball jonts on a 1998 dodge ram 2 will drive 318 and what tools will you need to do the job and to put new ball jonts back on the truck 1/2 ton.

Replacing ball joints can be a big and dangerous job. I would recommend taking your truck to a good mechanic to get the job done.

Wheel bearing replacement or repair?

Hello, sorry to tell you but you can't replace the wheel bearings. All the wheel bearings are sealed in a hub. You will need to replace the whole hub assembly. This hub assembly will fit either side left or right. The last one replaced was on 2005 Dodge Diesel 4X4 truck. I think the hub assembly was about $235. It quit a job to replace the hub assembly. You will need some tools for large bolts, 18" breaker bar, and maybe with cheater, large sockets, 1/2 drive will due, need some blue/red lock tight, cleaner to clean the threads on the bolts, and also most of these hub assembly are rusted to inter control arm hub. It is a very hard job to get this bearing hub assembly off, especially if it is rusted on. I used a torch on the Dodge finally after two day of working on it. It should have been 3 hrs job but I also had to replace upper and lower ball joints. Replacing the ball joints is another job in itself and needed special tools for this job.

If you don't have the tools for this job I wouldn't try it. It is a very hard job with the tools.

Maybe some of your friends have the tool to tackle this job, if not, then your local mechanic (good mechanic, not one that says he/she is a mechanic) I started when I was 8 years old in my father shop and now I'm 70 years old and this isn't my profession, I'm electrical engineer.

If you going to have some shops do this job. Get three or four estimate for the job and if they haven't done a hub replacement job. Then have a mechanic that has done job, they will know what it takes.

They will probably give a better job and the cost will fall within the estimated range for repair.

Buddy, I wish you lot of luck in this endeavor. GB...stewbison

The 98 accord exl v6 2 door coupe is making a cracking noise in the front end when I turn left or right

Two things come to mind: 1) A frozen ball joint in the steering arm, 2) A defective steering rack. Make sure power steering fluid is topped, if you hear a whining noise while turning.

1998 Honda accord v6 fwd

if you are not familiar with transmissions dont try it it is quite difficult it may not even be the tranny going bad it may be the shift sensor if your check engine light is on go by a check engine tool at autozone for 25.00 and check the code se what is says if it is the tranny sensor it should come op and that will be alot cheaper but if you do replace i would go new cant beat new rebuilt tranniesare not guarenteed when installed by owner anyway hope that helps

Cv joint replacement 1998 isuzu trooper 4x4

This is a simple job that is why it is not very detailed in your book. Nothing special. Do one side at a time so you have a reference to how to reassemble it. Remove your tire , brake calipers be sure not to stress the rubber brake lines or open the brake lines to air. Remove both upper and lower ball joints. When taking out the ball joints remove the cotter pin and bolt and beat the **** out of the joint for it to release. Then the C/V axles will come right out with a bit out encouragement. You will need a few tools wrenches pry bar hammer. I would buy a Chilton's or a Haynes repair manual for torque specs for reassembly. Good luck and take your time. And unless the axles are making noise you can just replace the rubber boots. Which is alot cheaper.

Replacing a '98 Grand Cherokees ball joints

The only parts you need are the ball joints, upper and lower, a total of 4, if you need all 4. As far as tools, you'll need wrenches, a removal and installer tool, the ball joints are pressed into the control arms, and a ball joint to steering knuckle seperator tool.Without those special tools, you will never get them changed, if you do it yourself.

How to replace the lower ball joints on a 96 ford taurus GL?

Ford states that you should replace the entire knuckle, however since I'm an Engineer (Mechanical and Electronic) and basically cannot stand other Engineers (they are usually full of themselves) I look at things a different way. I had the same problem and since I'm a bit lazy in my old age, I hired 2 different road mechanics to replace the ball joints on my 1998 Taurus SE. Both of them beat themselves silly with hammers to try to remove the old ones with no success. (They gave up & stated that Ithey would have to replace the entire knuckle assempby. I sent them on their way. (this was 2 seperate occasions a day apart). (they both also claimed ASE certified) The next day I went to Auto Zone, purchased the new ball joints and did it myself. After removing the hardware (nuts, snap rings, etc) I got out my air chisel. Had them BOTH out in about 3 minutes. Good luck. The entire job took me less than an hour. Good luck!!
