The spindle is what holds the front tires on. The axle is what holds the rear tires on. To remove the spindle, you have to remove the brake caliper first the remove the ball joint nuts. hit the spindle were the ball joints go in. The shock will release the ball joints. To remove the axles, you have to remove the differential plate, spin the differential until you see the bolt that locks the center pin in. remove both. push in the axle and remove the C clip. pull the axle out.

Dlpehow to replace rear rotors on a 2001 dodge 3500 diesel

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.

DISASSEMBLY:
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.]

REASSEMBLY:
Is the reversal of dis-assembly and removal. Make sure you use new copper washers for your banjo bolts upon reassembly). Good luck.

first jack up side you will be working on and place jjackstand under the frame, next remove the wheel,to make it easier remove the caliper and tie away, dont remove the brake hose!, then remove the rotor it slides off you may need to tap backside with a hammer, next is to remove the bolt and nut from the lower balljoint, then use balljiont tool to saperate the lower control arm from spindle, you may need a pry bar to pull down on control arm to completly separte move spindle to side and let arm up, next remove the axle (cv) nut on the front, then use pry bar to pop out of trany, install new axle hold straight and slide into tray as far as you can then with nut on the axle a little tap to axle in to trany the rest of the way you will feel it go in and lock and then reverse direction to put back together, hope this helps.

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...

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4 w drive rear rotors

Can't tell you exactly how because i don't know what axle you have, but usually just take the main nut in the center off will bring it right out. Remove the wheel, and the brake calliper first and see if it comes off then remove the center nut.
