Question about 1985 Dodge Pickup 4WD

Open Question

Need to know how to remove the bearings on the front spindles on a 4 WD 1985 dodge truck 250 3500lb front axles. they look like they should just slide out since i removed the gasket but they do not. I replaced the U joints and thought I should go ahead and replace bearings and oil seals(done with oil seals). I have tried prying them out but they are in there pretty good, didnt know if someone had a trick i could use or is there a special tool one needs. Thanks Billy

Cant figure out how to get the front driverside axle out of my 05 dodgeram


Remove the hub if the axle nut is loose. Look at the inside of the spindle, you'll see three bolt heads. They hold the hub and bearing in place. Once you remove them, the hub and bearing will come out giving you enough clearance to pull the axle out through the hole.

Remove wheel
Remove axle nut

The tie rod should loosen up and you remove it off spindle.

Hit spindle area where ball joint mounts (wear saftey glasses)
Carfully pry down the lower control arm too remove ball joint from arm.
Press in the axle towards the trans. out of the wheel bearing.
Place a piece of wood between the shock and inner fender to give yourself room to work.
Remove the three 15mm bolts that hold the wheel bearing on.

You may need to break a sweat on this part. Somtimes they are rusted in.

Upper and lower ball joint replacement


to remove the axles, remove brake caliper and disc, remove hub assembly, the center hub/axle nut and...(there are i think 3-4 bolts on the back side of the spindle to remove the hub), you may have to force the hub off the spindle with a hammer or air hammer... once the hub is out the axle should slide out of the front differential allowing access to the ball joint nuts for removal...

Front wheel bearing 2004 escape 4x4


It's nearly impossible unless you have a good air compressor and a powerful 1/2" or larger drive impact gun.The reason is you have to remove the cv axle nut and axle out of the way before removing the bearing and hub.The axle nut requires a couple hundred foot pounds to remove.The procedure is:Jack vehicle safely off the ground,remove wheel and tire.Remove axle retaining nut.Remove balljoint nut and bolt,pry down on lower control arm,and disengage balljoint and lower arm from spindle.Now the axle can be released from the hub,but leave the other end of the axle in the trans,just set off to the side out of the way.At this point,there are two ways to change the bearing.The wheel bearing is a double roller,cartridge type with the hub containg the wheel studs,pressed into the bearing.Remove the entire spindle assembly from the suspension strut,OR leave the spindle attached to the strut,and remove the bearing and hub from the spindle.Some guys swear by taking the spindle to a press,and pressing the bearing assembly out with a bottle jack.I just use a bushing driver set,and ball peen hammer,and remove the hub from the bearing...then remove the snap ring retaing the bearing in the spindle,then drive the bearing out of the spindle with the hammer and drivers.There you have it.Reverse procedure for reassembly
