SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 - clicking noise in front

The CV joint is shot. With the rotation of the hub you shouldn't see any up and down oscillation. That clicking noise you hear is the telltale. You need the CV joint to be rebuilt (or the axle replaced - your call). Do NOT just replace the boot and repack it with new grease - once the joint is audibly clicking, it's ruined and must be replaced. If you put this off too long and the CV joint breaks, you'll coast to the side of the road and won't move again under your own power until a new one is installed.

SOURCE: 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

Can't remember if your axle is set up like the ones on a Jeep (too many cars stuck in my head) but if it is, the seal is on the inboard end of the axle and easy to forget it's there. If you don't lift the axle so it goes through the center of the seal when you put it back in, it will push the seal out and cause a leak.
If that's the case, whoever did the work needs to make it right. (carrier needs to be removed as well as the axle, to replace the seal)

How do i remove a right front cv axle from a 2002 dodge ram 1500?

For around $20. buy a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual. It will walk you through this repair and give you the needed torque specs. so you don't over or under tighten anything. But you were able to succesfully the splined end. Going into the hub then all is left is to release the cir-clip on the other end. Yes, there should be a C clip.
Look at a new one or repair manual to verify.
