Are that you joints part of the front wheel bearing assembly


No. If you have four wheel drive, from the transfer case you will have two drives shafts. These are what have the U joints.

2002 Dodge Durango SXT 4.7L RWD shaking (serious vibration) badly between 70 to 80 mph


If it were me I would take out the drive shaft and check the play in the universal joints (I know you said they were replaced). Unlike ball joints they should exhibit good freedom of movement and flop from one position to the next as the shaft is rotated in the hand. Check that the bearing cup retaining clips are present on all sides. If there is any tightness in a bearing it is possible that either one of the cups has been pressed (hammered?) in too far or that a needle bearing was dropped from the outer race into the cup during assembly. Also check that the cup holders (arms) are not bent, sometimes if care is not taken to support the back of the 'arms' when installing the bearing cups the 'arms' will bend.

Hard steering very hard and replced the power steering pump today


check the steering joint in the steering shaft (the shaft from steering wheel to steering rack.) the joint may be binding. the rack could be bad. also you could have an issue with a ball joint.

I don't understand what you mean by a bolt over!!!, But when they did all that other stuff did they happend to chk. the ball joints, I have a 2001 durango, and i recieved a letter from chys. that there was a recall on the ball joints on durangos and dakotas so the dealer change them at no charge to me. Sound to me to be a ball joint issue, at least it would be worth looking into.

Popping and clicking in 2003 dodge durango steering column, it feels as if the column is loose at some point, it's not in the front end, it seems to be from the firewall up to the steering wheel


i believe there is a replacement steering shaft from dodge to get rid of this noise,the dakotas have the same problem,it comes from the shaft design and the flex of the body mounts when u accel or deccel,hope this helps

2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can be felt in steering column ball joints,tie rod ends, control arm bushings,sway bar bushings replaced,shocks replaced steering column bushings checked all...


With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

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
