a balljoint removal tool is definately the proper way to remove the ball joints. harbour freight does carry them but there not the best tool provider. also if the ones your replacing aren't greaseable your better off putting greaseable fittings will defineatly make a difference.

Not hard, you'll need a special socket to get the axle nut off and getting the bearing out of the spindle is usually a real chore. Since it sounds like the spindle is already out, you might be able to do it in a press.

To get the ball joints out of the spindle, drive them out with a hammer. If you need to get the ball joint out of the axle, strike the axle next to where the ball joint taper is with a large hammer. That will usually distort the axle material enough (for a split second) to let the tappered section loose.

Operation: Most universal joints are held in place with a combination of pressed fit with a snap ring and either a bearing plate, bearing strap or a U-bolt. Advice: Most universal joints have two bearing caps pressed into the driveshaft and use a snap ring either on the inside or outside of the bearing cap to hold it in place. Some manufacturers use injected plastic instead of a snap ring. The injected plastic holds the cap in place under normal conditions but will break free when pressure is applied during the removal process. The replacement universal joint will use a snap ring instead of the injected plastic. The other two bearing caps are usually held in place by either a bearing plate, bearing strap or a U-bolt all of which can be removed with a normal ratchet and socket or wrench. Occasionally you will find all four bearing caps using the press fit method. In these cases two of the bearing caps will be pressed into a flange that unbolts from the differential or a slip yoke that slides off of the transmission tail shaft.

How do you change a front axle u-joint on a 2006 3500 dodge ram


you will have to change both sides to start with. I'm doing this on a 1996 ram 1500. first, put the truck on 2 wheel drive or neutral for traction, raise vehicle, i got a lift it's easy, remove both wheels, calipers and rotors. unlock the driveshaft nut (cotter pin) and unbolt that nut. on the inside of the hub, first mark the relation on one side between the yoke and the shaft, then, there is 3 bolts holding the hub in, remove them. next, more cotter pins, upper and lower ball joint and tie-rod end need to come out, so, unscew the tie-rod end first and seperate it with ball joint seperator. do the same for the upper and lower ball joints. seperate the spindle and the axel should come out. the rest is standard procedure to change a ball joint.
let me know if it's enough info or if you want more please.

You need to replace the whole right side axle shaft. Take the ball-joint loose and the axle nut. Pull the shaft from the hub assembly and then pull it from the transmission
