Your better off have it done bt a tech because you need a press to press them out and in. Also you will have a warranty witk the work. You want to be safe messing with your steering and suspension. I hope this helps.

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

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 W/ 4WD, and a 5.2L engine. When I am driving down a rough road, it feels like my right front tire is bouncing like a basketball. Thinking it was a dead shock, I replaced it...


lower ball joints or king pins do this quite regularly. lift the tire and try moving it in and out on both the top and bottom. look for the slack at the joints.

1998 dodge ram 4x4 how do i replace the front u joints on passenger side


u need to take of the brake pads and rotor. loosen the three bolts to the wheel bearing, take the top one completely out. take a long socket with another guy in the truck. start it and have the socket wedged on the bolt and the front axle. dont use the 12 point socket ur using to loosen bolts. it might break. anyways turn the steering wheel until the socket pushes on the bolt breaking the bearing loose from the axle u get that and u pull the shaft out and change the u joint

Ball Joints


I highly recommend that you have a press available, they dont screw in unfortunatly.
To change uper ball joints; Remove tire Pull codder pin and remve nut Tap ball joint out of wheel/ brake assembly Remove upper control arm compleatly Use Press to push old ball joint out of controll arm.
A torch may be nessisary to heat controll arm. Press new ball joint all the way into controll arm Reinstall every thing Get a professional front end alignment. 

Good lcuk and hope this helps.

01 dodge ram shakes violent after bump


Yes, that rod isn't bad to do, You'll need a ball-joint removal fork for the ball-joint. But after that removing the bolt, releasing the other end is a piece of cake. You will want a friend around for installing the new one. he or she will turn the steering wheel so you can insert the new ball-joint into the frame.
