Question about 1992 Dodge Caravan
Remove the wheel, the castle nut in the axle, then break calliper and place it out of the way, carfull not to damage the brake line. It is usualy held down with a ten mil. bolt on the control arm. You dont have to remove the line from the calliper. remove the lower shock bolts, sway bar, stearing arm. I have always been able to press down the lower control arm enough to work the axle out of the hub. Carfully pry the other end from the transmission with a tool, or hefty screwdriver. Becarful not to damage the axle seals on the trans. I ussualy yank out the axle on my old cars.

This is quite a simple task. you need to remove the wheel, the axle nut (outside end of axle, center of rotor), and the lower ball joint. when the ball joint is seperated, you can swing the whole steering assembly to the side. tap on the end of the axle, being careful not to damage the threads, and pull out of the steering knuckle assembly. to remove the axle from the transmission, you should be able to pull it out. if it is stubborn, use a prybar to pry it out. installation is reverse of disassembly. when reassembling, you need to torque the axle nut properly. sorry! but i do not have that spec on hand, it does sometimes come in the new axle box. they are aproximately 170 ft lbs. hope this is helpful, and good luck!
