SOURCE: how to change the u-joints in the front end for a

I did this myself recently and it's not too difficult a job if you are mechanically inclined and you have the right tools. The one pain in the *** is removing the "hub" nut (seems like it's called different things but that's what I'll refer to it as) I'm sure you could do this without removing the spindle but I removed all of it because I replaced the bearing assemblies as well. 1) Start by chocking your rear wheels 2) Next remove the front wheels 3) Remove your brakes, there's no need to bleed them; there's a couple allen wrench bolts that you need to remove to disconnect the brakes then they should slide right off the rotor. a7cc4ca.jpg 4) Hang your brake assembly off the frame somewhere close, but don't hang it by the brake line. 5) Now your rotor can be pulled straight off.31d3f51.jpg 6) Remove the cotter pin going through your hub nut 7) The next part is the pain in the *** part - removing the hub nut. I tried an impact wrench, PB Blaster, a breaker bar (which I broke), a torch, and finally drove a ways to buy a 3/4" railroad breaker bar which I ended up using to shear the impact reducer I had. The socket size is 43mm and the way I finally got it off was to use a **** pipe/monkey wrench on the SIDES of the 43mm impact socket with a couple foot cheater pipe on the end of the wrench. That finally broke it free. I believe you will find that you will have to put a rod or something to stop the spindle from turning when you're working with the hub nut. 8) Now you remove the 3 bolts holding the bearing assembly to the frame 9) Now the bearing assembly should pull straight out leaving the spindle free as well. 10) Now you can remove the spindle - try to support it as you pull it out a3e6500.jpg 11) Now you're home free, sort of. You now have access to the u-joints. There should be a retaining ring on each of the four ends; these all will need to be removed by a screwdriver/cold chisel and a little persuasion with a hammer. d75fc3b.jpg 2ad9236.jpg 12) Put the u-joint in a vise and tighten it down pretty good. Next take a socket or something suitable that is as close to the actual size but slightly smaller than the u-joint ends. Place the socket on the end and start pounding the u-joint out - it should slowly move out of the shaft and one end will eventually get to the point where it will fall off or you can just remove it once it's free of the shaft. When you get the one end off you should be able to either pound it back through the other end or just remove the opposite end as is. 13) Do the same for the other two ends of the u-joint. ed78560.jpg 14) Now it should all be separated and ready for the new u-joints. One thing that's really important about the new u-joints is to make sure that you put the caps on with all the bearings in their spots - don't let any of them fall out; they have a bunch of grease in there so they shouldn't. Put the u-joint in position and put the caps in place and either hammer them in or use a vise to compress them into place, but you will probably have to finish them off with a hammer. 15) Once you have them completely compressed, put the retaining ring on each cap, then do the next two caps and you're done with that u-joint! Installation is the reverse of removal but be sure to: a) grease the spindle end before you put it back in, b) grease the splines where the bearing assembly slides over c) when you reinstall the rotor guard thin sheet metal, be sure you install it the correct way d) when you reinstall the brake, make sure there are no twists in the line. 3cbbca8.jpg During all of this you may want to check your rotors and brake pads for wear - these are easy to replace while you're doing this project. The bearing assemblies may need to be replaced as well, just another thing to consider if you're not strapped for cash. 1c35d37.jpg Disclaimer: This information is solely informative and not prescriptive.

Why after I took my four wheel drive out the front wobbles? sometime and over 55 mph its making a loud humming sound?

For the wobbling. Can you feel the wobbling in the steering wheel? If so. 1 Check tires for knots or steel breaks, 2 bent rims. 3 Check lug nuts, Also check oil-grease in front end. Humming could very well be dry front end or bearing.

Most likely it is the RH front wheel bearings. CV Joints don't usually make any noise until you turn a rather sharp corner. I would advise you to replace the bearings and seals in both front wheels if the bearings are in fact noisy. Jack up the front and spin each wheel, you'll soon hear the sound of rumbling bearings.

How much in ny to replace front end differential, horrible whaling hum from front end. did local shop cause this when seals were done last year, i heard they have to torque it properly or this damage will...

only if seals leaked out the gear lube.
you need to check the fluid level first,
and make sure your not hearing a front wheel bearing going bad,does it make the noise only in four wheel drive?
before you start worrying about price of front differential you need to locate for sure what is causing it.

Front end makes a grinding noise when driving normal but does not do it in 4 wheel drive..what could be the problem and why wouldnt it do it in 4 wheel drive as well

When you are in 4 wheel drive there is a constant force on all four drive axles. When you are in two wheel drive there is only force on the two rear axles. Therefore the front axle is worn either left or right but they should be repaired as a pair as not to disrupt the suspension tuning. Thank you, Dana

Grease fittings front end

certain durangos, have the fittings on the ends of the tie rods, and the ball joints, but it is different for 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive models... if you do not see the grease fittings on the ball joints, or the tie rods that means they can not be greased... check the boots on them tho, if there is any tearing, or the boot is missing or broken in any way, that part will need to be taken out and replaced...if the suspension part has no grease fitting in place, this indicates it is sealed and doesn't require periodic lubrication
