Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck
Don't do it before you have to - but if you've got to here you go . . .
HINT: You have to pull both rear axles so make sure you've got plenty of side clearance and clean area to lay the interior axle parts on - to keep from contaminating upon rebuild. An impact wrench is needed as well as a large spindle socket. Measure the spindle nut then go purchase your socket. I don't think you can do this job w/o it as you will mess up your parts if you beat it off.
1. Raise and support the vehicle
2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly
3. Remove the disc brake caliper
3.1 Remove top of Master Cylinder and keep open
3.2 Compress the disc brake caliper w/C clamp & wood block
3.3 Remove the caliper pin bolts
3.4 Remove the banjo bolts (replace the copper washer upon reinstallation)
3.5 Use coat hanger to support caliper assy out of way
4. Remove spindle nut
5. Remove axle shaft out of axle housing (if dually) - pull it straight out. Be careful not to ding the interior spline on the way out.
6. Remove hub and rotor assembly
[Note: It's a good time to replace parking brake pads too. You're right there.]
Is the reversal of dis-assembly and removal. Make sure you use new copper washers for your banjo bolts upon reassembly). Good luck.
