SOURCE: Steering problem 1997 Dodge Ram

the half shaft does not need to go in a certain way, Just as long as you get it in all the way. when checking steering play to see where it is. It's best to leave the truck off. Turn ignition on but dont start to unlock steering column, Then look by driverside tire while your buddy just turns the wheel only the amount of free play it has. Just back and forth usually a few inchs. till it starts getting tight. "Look at the steering shaft and you will see it turning back and forth. Then Look at the output on the pitman arm. It should move back and forth with steering shaft. slower but at the same rate. If it does not. you need a gearbox. but read up because you can adjust some of them with a locknot and screw on top of box. If it's ok. look at the drag link. And down the line. eventually you'l find the problem. Any more Q e-mail me at

SOURCE: remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Titan.....My front driver side axle

This failure has NO temporary fix, it is caused by the front axle "C" clip retainer failing, in the process it destroys the front differential, this is a factory defect and has been reported by 100's of 2004-2006 Titan owners, a new front differential assembly is required to fix the failure, sorry to give the bad news, what I would do is contact the local Nissan dealer and see if the factory will help with the cost of the repair or contact the Nissan customer service hotline number in your owners manaul, it is a pattern failure and I believe it has been reported to the US Department of Transportation Safety Board.
Below you will find a link to Nissan truck owners Forum, the entire thread is about the axle problems, I would read it if i were you.

Bought a 2006 dodge ram 1500 they put a new cv shaft on driver side but the part that slides on to the axle keeps sliding back off but not all the way off past that ring that pushes on what do I do

There are different lengths between the rh and lh drive shafts
It is not much but if the wrong side shaft was fitted then that would explain the problem
Take it back to the repairer and explain the problem and have them fix it at their cost.

2004 Dodge Ram with 129K ran differential low on fluid and it has a whining noise. Filled with fluid but the noise is still there and seems to be getting louder. What is making the noise in your opinion...

Could be pinion bearings, differential side bearings, axle bearings, ring and pinion mating, or any combination of the above. Very complicated stuff. Leave it to a pro.

99 dodge ram van 3500 rear end loud nose when the veh is moving, i have checked the rear oil and it is full.

It could be bad pinion bearings, broken spider gears, etc. inside the differential. It could also be an axle bearing. Check the insides of your rear wheels to see if there is any rear-end grease coming out near the wheel end of the axle. If there is oil coming out, then you have a bad wheel bearing. Otherwise, you will have to remove the differential cover to check for metal particles in the rear end and to see if there are any broken gears.

I am trying to remove the differential on a dodge ram 1500 4*4. I was told that if you slide out both sides of the axle and unbolt the bearings the differential should fall out. but it seems to be stuck...

Rear I take it. Cover off. Push in slightly on axles & look at end of shaft inside housing. Small lip, then groove, then rest of axle to outside. Inside that groove should be a half moon "C" shaped retainer that needs to be taken out, then axles should slide right out if it's like a standard axle.One on both, just push axle in, and you should see it.
Let us know.
