Upper ball joint removal


I have a 98 dodge ram 4wd, and i am an auto mechanic. I replaced all 4 ball joints and both axle joints and did my front end alignment in about 4 hours. The ball joints are pressed into the front axle yoke holes. If you have a ball joint press tool (which i used) it works out pretty easily in a decent amount of time. Otherwise if your lucky, you could use a hammer, which is not nearly as easy. Also, sometimes depending on how long and rusted the front end is, you might have to heat up the area a little with a torch.I also recommend using the best ball joints you can afford, because it would **** to have to do it all again after another 10,000-60,000 miles.

I have a 2004 Ram 1500 4x4 with the 5.7 Hemi. It has 65,000 miles on it, a few weeks ago I noticed a slight shudder in the rear end when I take off from a complete stop. The problem seems worse after...


either the pinion bearing is going out (unlikely) if you dont drive it hard or your u-joint has gone bad. or if you have long wheel base dodge the carrier bearing is loose

Ball Joints


I highly recommend that you have a press available, they dont screw in unfortunatly.
To change uper ball joints; Remove tire Pull codder pin and remve nut Tap ball joint out of wheel/ brake assembly Remove upper control arm compleatly Use Press to push old ball joint out of controll arm.
A torch may be nessisary to heat controll arm. Press new ball joint all the way into controll arm Reinstall every thing Get a professional front end alignment. 

Good lcuk and hope this helps.

01 dodge ram shakes violent after bump


Yes, that rod isn't bad to do, You'll need a ball-joint removal fork for the ball-joint. But after that removing the bolt, releasing the other end is a piece of cake. You will want a friend around for installing the new one. he or she will turn the steering wheel so you can insert the new ball-joint into the frame.
