Remove the brake assy. Remove the rotor. Remove the big axle nut. There should be 3 bolts that hold the hub bearing assy in place. Remove those bolts. Tap the hub bearing assy. off. Pull the axle shaft out.

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

SOURCE: how do take out the cv joint on the front axle of

assuming you have the 2wd version....

1997-99 Models

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unlock the steering column so the linkage is free to move, then raise and support the front of the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  4. Insert a drift through the brake caliper into one of the brake rotor vanes to prevent the drive axle from turning.
  5. Remove the axle nut and washer from the hub end of the shaft. Hold the hub from turning and loosen the axle nut. Once the nut is loosened unthread it and remove the washer.
  6. Remove the brake caliper and support it with a piece of wire to avoid damaging the brake hose. Remove the brake rotor.
  7. Remove the ABS and brake line brackets from the top of the upper control arm.

Be careful when supporting the lower control arm that any components are damaged with the supporting device.
  1. Place a jackstand or jack under the lower control arm.
  2. Separate the axle shaft from the hub by placing a block of wood against the outer edge of the axle (to protect the threads), then strike the block of wood sharply with a hammer. Do not remove the axle at this time.
  3. Remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the upper ball joint stud nut away from the knuckle. Tip the knuckle out and toward the rear of the vehicle. Suspend the knuckle from the upper control arm or frame in order to prevent straining and damaging the brake line.
  4. Remove the lower shock absorber retainers, then compress the shock and secure it out of the way using safety wire.

Once the lower ball joint is separated from the knuckle, simultaneously push the axle shaft in towards the differential to allow room for the knuckle and assembly to be removed.
  1. Remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the lower ball joint stud nut away from the knuckle.
  2. Lower the safety stand or jack at the lower control arm to relieve pressure on the torsion bar, then separate the axle from the knuckle.
  3. Remove the differential carrier shield, being very careful not to damage the axle seal.
  4. To remove the shaft from the differential carrier, place a block of wood or a brass drift against the tripot housing, then strike it outwards using a hammer. You will have to hit it hard enough to overcome the snapring pressure retaining it.
  5. Support the drive axle, then pull the axle straight out from the carrier being careful not to tear the boot.

SOURCE: Upper and lower ball joint replacement

to remove the axles, remove brake caliper and disc, remove hub assembly, the center hub/axle nut and...(there are i think 3-4 bolts on the back side of the spindle to remove the hub), you may have to force the hub off the spindle with a hammer or air hammer... once the hub is out the axle should slide out of the front differential allowing access to the ball joint nuts for removal...

Try unplugging the vacuum line to the brake power booster with the vehicle in park and running. Press the brakes if it feels the same then the vacuum booster is bad and needs to be replaced. Try it with the vehicle running, and then not running. If the booster is boosting(for lack of a better term) there will be a difference when it's running.

Replacing front shackle 1983 jeep cj7


Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.

What is the service interval for repacking front axle bearings on a Jeep CJ 7?


It depends on how much you drive it and how it is driven. If the vehicle is driven to and from work only, the bearings are good for a couple of years if you are using good bearing grease. If the vehicle is driven to and from work with some mild off roading, then repacking the bearing every Spring would be recommended. If you are driving this through mud and water that is deep enough for the axles to be submerged, then every time this happens, the bearings should be repacked. Hope this helps.
