I would need to send diagrams and instructions. Please send an email to iambanshee74@yahoo.com and I will get these right to you. Please include engine size(should be 4.3 ltr) and 4WD or 2WD. These you will find to be real easy. Please make sure you have the axle nut in the centre, soaked in WD-40 to aid in removal. Do you have axcess to an air compressor? It will make this so much easier.

When I replace the axle halves, I run the Nut off till it is level with the shaft end. THen take a piece of wood and set it across the shaft and hit the wood with a hammer. Usually only takes one or two hits and pops right out.Then I remove the nut and finish removal . Hope this helps, Good luck and have a great day.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge 2500 Front Hub Assembly removal

Get a Haynes book for your model truck for less than $20.00. It has pictures and written directions. It is easy to do.

It is foolish to work on your truck without a service manual. You can order one on the internet or go to a Strauss or Pep Boys store,

SOURCE: need direction on replacing the front hub assembly

It's a press-in bearing. If you don't have the tools to press the bearing, you can still save some money. Here's what I did:
- Drain transmission oil,
- Remove front right wheel,
- Remove brake caliper, pads, caliper hanger,
- Remove the wheel speed sensor (even if no ABS),
- Remove the two large strut bolts (100+ lbs ft/lbs of torque),
- Remove the ball joint nut,
- Remove the ball joint from the steering knuckle,
- Remove the axle from the transmission using a pry bar.

Now you'll have the axle, steering knuckle, wheel hub and brake rotor removed from the car, and it'll all be ceased together. Bring the whole thing to your favorite mechanic and get him to separate all these parts and to install the new bearing in the steering knuckle. It'll cost about $100.

Now you'll have the axle, steering knuckle with new bearing and hub installed, and the brake rotor. Take these parts home and put the car back together in reverse order.

Seriously consider replacing the axle while you're at it.

How to replace a 1998 dodge dakota sport abs sensor


The front ABS sensors are built into the hub assemblies and the rear is mounted in the top of the rear differential. One would need to know where the fault is at before just replacing the sensors.
The rear one is relatively easy to replace aand the front ones require front hub assembly r&r.

When replacing any hub assembly you should never over-tighten the three or four bolts that bolt on the assembly. This will cause it to fail quickly. Use lock-tight to make sure they do not loosen up after installation. A way to tell if your hub assembly is going out is to push and pull on the top of tire. If it wobbles at all it should be replaced. If the hub assembly includes steering components that might interfere with the steering alignment then you should have it re-aligned after installation.

How do i replace bad front wheel bearing ?


Replace the hub assembly which can be bought for $58 to $100 from various sources.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Place jackstands under the cradle and lower the vehicle slightly so the weight of the vehicle rests on the jackstands and not on the control arms.
  3. Remove the wheel assembly.
  4. Insert a drift punch into the rotor and remove the hub nut/washer.
  5. Remove the brake caliper, support and the rotor.
  6. Using the front hub spindle remover tool, separate the halfshaft from the hub.
  7. Remove the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts and the hub/bearing assembly. To install:
  8. If replacing the seal, drive the seal towards the engine. Cut the seal off the halfshaft; be careful not to damage the halfshaft boot. NOTE: If the speed sensor bracket is removed or loosened from the steering knuckle, the speed sensor gap must be adjusted. If the speed sensor is removed from the bracket, speed sensor wax must be applied to the sensor before it is reinstalled in the bracket. Failure to apply the wax will permit corrosion and may result in sensor failure.
  9. To install the new grease seal, lubricate the with wheel bearing grease and using the hub seal installer tool, install the seal.
  10. Install the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts and the hub/bearing assembly. Tighten the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  11. Install the halfshaft to the hub.
  12. Install the rotor and caliper.
  13. Install the hub nut and washer. Tighten to 183 ft. lbs. (245 Nm).
  14. Install the wheel assembly.
  15. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.
