  2. Install the bearing and inner nut. While rotating the wheel and tire, tighten the adjusting nut until a slight drag is felt.
  3. Back off the adjusting nut 1 / 6 turn so that the wheel rotates freely without excessive end-play.
  4. Install the lockrings and nut. Place a new gasket on the hub and install the axle shaft, cones, lockwashers and nuts.
  5. Install the wheel and tire.
  6. Road-test the vehicle.

  4. Release the brake by prying down against the starwheel with a brake spoon.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and clips from the wheel studs. Remove the brake drum.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Adjust the brakes.

I hope helps.

Front and back berring dissassembly of differential 2001 dodge 1500


For the rear diff., remove the driveshaft, brake drums, diff. cover, remove pinion flange nut, move diff carrier to access side gear retainer bolt and remove bolt, slide side gear pin out and push axles in to remove axle retainers and remove axels. Mark carrier bearing retainers, spin bearing retainers to loosen carrier for removal. Remove carrier, remove pinion out of diff case, then r&r bearings. Any shims should be replaced in their original location for depth and pinion to ring contact.

Cant cant remove rear drum brakes on 2001 ram 1500


You need to remove the rubber plug on the back of the shoe hold down plate. Next you need a brake adjusting tool or a flat screwdriver to back off the adjuster. This operation will take a few turns depending on how deep a groove has been worn in the drum. If it is tightening, you've gone the wrong way. Next remove the drum. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

How do i remove the rear axels on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 3.6 v8


this is for front axle removing.you have too take off the wheel then the brakes, then you have to remove the 3 bolts on the back of the wheel assembly and lightly take a mallet and tap the wheel assembely out. and it all just pulls out after that. ------------- for rear axle . for the axle shaft,jack the rear of the truck up take off the wheels and brake drums.make sure truck is securly supported with jackstands.remove the differental cover locate the bolt that holds the cross pin in the carrier.remove the bolt,slide out the cross pin.push the axle in towards the center and remove the c-clip holding the axle in.remove the axle shaft carefully so not to damage the bearings or seal. ----------- You need to remove a bolt inline with the axles on the spider gears which holds the center pin in place. Remove the pin, rotate the spider gears to the other side. Now move the axles inward to reveal the c-clips and use a hemostat to remove. Of course the the truck is up on jacks with the tires removed. this will help.

Need instructions on how to replace rear drum brakes on 1997 dodge ram 1500 club cab


1/2 ton drums just slide off after the wheels have been remove. you might have to hit the drum with a hammer on the inner side by the backing plate because they wear a grove after a while making them hard to remove.

Rear brakes


After removing tire pull bolts holding brake calipers to rotor. Use a clamp or something in that nature to push old brake shoe into housing that way you wont have to bleed your brake system. Replace new shoes and reinstall caliper. Start vehicle and pump up brakes before traveling make sure to test brakes first to make sure no fluid was lost.
