  • A torque spec of 180 foot lbs. is recommended. I highly suggest never using an impact for the hub to axle application. If you don't use a properly calibrated torque wrench you could have problems in the future.

  • Hope this helps.

How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?


  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    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...

    Need to replace steering arm on pass side on 1998


    Your description leads me to believe that the spindle is bent. This is the piece that the tie rod attaches to near the wheel. Sometimes the tie rod is attached to a piece that attaches to the spindle which is rather intuitive. Just remove the tie rod end, unbolt the arm that attaches to the spindle and replace the arm. In this case the only special tool you'll need is a tie rod seperator.

    If the arm is a part of the spindle and cannot be removed easily:

    1) Put vehicle in park and safety brake on - chock the rear wheels
    2) Lift passenger side front wheel and put on jack stands
    3) Remove wheel and have a friend apply brake pressure
    4) Loosen hub nut with appropriate socket (22 to 35mm)
    You can purchase the socket from your local auto parts store
    You'll need a large breaker bar, its torqued to about 100ft-lbs
    5) Remove tie rod end with a tie rod/ball joint separator
    This can also be purchased at your local auto parts store.
    Some spindles are made with tie rod end permanantly attached
    If it is removable, remove nut and drive the separator tool
    between the tie rod and spindle using a large hammer.
    It'll eventually break free from the spindle.
    6) Remove the strut with a strut spring compressor tool
    WARNING - THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS
    This can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
    Compress spring before removing lower bolts (2 of them).
    The strut may be left on vehicle but the spring must be
    compressed.
    7) Remove caliper and break assembly
    Loosen the two slide bolts that go through the caliper assembly
    Remove caliper and breaks - let it hang by the tubing
    8) Detach upper and lower ball joints with seperator tool as in #5
    9) Finally remove the hub nut from #4
    The spindle should slide off the axle
    10) Repair or replace the spindle and put it all back together in
    reverse order using new wheel bearings. Pack them with axle
    grease if theyr'e not the sealed type.

    NOTE: The tie rod end may need to be replaced also. The vehicle will need a front end allignment. Be sure to torque the hub nut to the manufacturers specifications - at least 75ft-lbs. You should probably replace the wheel bearings.
