I know this sounds stupid, but did you remove the cotter key and the nut from the hubs flange on the outside? This is what keeps it linked to the axle splines the other bolts you removed keep the bearing /hub assembly tied to the front suspension. This answer is not meant to be insulting to you. Just a reminder. Some people do not know about the purpose of this nut at the end of the axle.

On my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 2WD, I just found


This is a very simple job to do. Raise the front of truck off the ground,block the rear tires. Using pliers and a hammer,remove the grease cap from hub. Remove the cotter key and nut from axle,pull out slowly and remove outer bearing. then remove hub from axle. To remove inner bearing ,prop hub on a board and use a large punch to drive out bearing and seal. Clean out inside the hub and install new bearing and seal. Replace all parts in the reverse as you took them off. Hope this will help you.

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.

Removal of Axle U-Joint on 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4


the hard part is getting the bearing out of the knuckle . I have seen tecks cut the u joint out with a torch so they don't have to mess with the bearing. but her is a good trick . leave all the steering together just remove the rotor s and calipers loosen the bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle about 3/8 of a inch out then using a socket and small extention on the bolt turn the steering wheel (with the engine running)so it binds on the axle tube us te hydrolic pressur of the steering to press the bearing out . it really works.on the right side axle put a mighty vac on the 4x4 acuator to hold the collar when removing the axle Hope this helps

I think my front Drivers side wheel bearing is going out on my 2004 dodge ram 1500 4x4. It is an ABS system. What should I do to replace this? I wouldnt mind doing it myself if its the cheaper route.


Remove the wheel, the brake caliper with the mounting bracket and pads all together, the brake rotor, and the axle nut. Make sure the axle is free inside the hub splines by pushing it in a bit. I believe this truck has 3 bolts for the hub/bearing assy. They remove from the inboard side of the knuckle, then the hub/bearing assy comes out. It may be corroded in the knuckle, so some force may be required to get it out. To reassemble, reverse the steps, being careful to torque the axle nut to the proper spec. Also pump the brake pedal before you road test to verify the noise is gone.

Shakes badly when it reaches 30mph


could be bad hub bearings, or cv axles. If the cv boots are ripped, replace the entire axles, both sides. if the cv boots are still intact then I would replace only the hub bearing assemblies.

2002 dodge ram 4WD front hub bearing


Here is the easiest way . take a 14mm socket and extentsion and place it on the bolts and place againt your axle tube and start your truck and turn your wheel against it instead of pounding you will use your powersteering like a press to get your hub out its quicker and less strenous than pounding on the bolts ive done this many times i even made a extentsion for it i use a 14mm 1/2 drive shallow socket and a extension thats about 4 inches long i know im posting late on this one but if it helps anyone out then great
