Ram 1500 Pickup ...... 175 foot lbs. Then tighten until the cotter pin can be inserted. I had the same problem. I had to replace the inline check valves and I also had a bad hose. The check valves are not expensive.

Hub Assy replacement for 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4


when you take off the front wheels, you can see behind the hub assembly. there should be 4 or 5 star style bolts that hold the hub in place. you can either break them loose on the truck or in a vise. you will need a star socket,( or it may need a 12 point socket?). there is also a big nut in front of the hub that will take a lot of torque to remove (300-500lbs). the axle is probably going to be rusted also, so you will have to work it out. it is easier to buy a hub, some come in pieces, so you'll have to have them pressed together by a machine shop and them put them on. i am getting ready to do this on on my dually and the axle nut is torqued to 500lbs. be careful and i hope this helps you. andy
