Did this video help you?

spelunkerd: Re Ryan Teague Not sure, probably similar. Newer vehicles have rear disc brakes but I don't know which year that change was made.

Joey Beckum: awsome video man, i was nervous about pulling the axle out by myself. I was afraid i would cause something to fall out of the diffrential. I have to replaced my wheel bearing and i have a rea axle seal leak. but this video gave me some confidence. May have saved me alot of money. haha thank you

MrBuckaroonie: Just a question. I have a LSD in my Nissan. Can you tighten up the LSD with the back of the diff housing off or does the whole diff have to come out?

mike nygaard: I just found out my right rear was leaking gear oil tonight. I found this to not only be a clear video, but one of the most professional i have ever seen on youtube. Keep up the good work.

b4roni1: thanks this was very helpful. my my rear end fluid was a quart low that's probably a sign of a leaky seal. I check everything after I leave the dealership. it's a trust issue

Jacob Delong: is this the same for the Chrysler 8.25 rear end it looks the exact same

MrBuckaroonie: That was excellent mate. Thanks a lot. Got to do my left side.

lenzie5067: spelunkerd. Thank you for this write up. I like your low key approach and procedure. You make this look very easy.

RICKAFIX: nice job spelunkerd so far out of all the video's i have watched on rear axle's yours is the only one that shows what the post does. did you do both seals while you were in the area? thanks

Michael Jeffcoat: So after I removed my axel shaft I found that it was my axel shaft that was damaged so I had to order a new one and I've installed my new bearings and seal I just have to remember how these two pieces go back in with the pin because The man helping me kept turning my axel shaft until everything fell out lol 

Abdulla Al Mansouri: Is the same for Dodge SRT 10 Ram Viper rear axle left? Btw nice job!

Richard Cowtails: Hava you ever done a vid about the bearings of the diff and the other stuff in there? like how everything goes together or comes apart? stuff like that? 

Ryan Teague: Would this be the same on an 02 ram 1500 but on the right side 

Tarrius Hodge: Hi I just bought an old Dodge ram v6 van 1500(98). I am happy for the most part with the prefomance of the car. But I do not feel safe at all in the snow. Whenever there is a slight hill on the road when snowing- I can feel the vans right rear wheel pulling to the right. The back end spins out of place and the tires start to slip. Plus the ABS & break light are always on. Otherwise I feel it drives okay for what I paid for it. I was wondering if you have any suggestion about where I should start to deal with this problem becaase it can be very dangerous if not taken care of.

Michael Jeffcoat: Thanks for the help

Steven Rogers: Would the right side axle be the same way to remove and reinstall?? I have a 2002 dodge Durango, the right side axle snapped off in a accident.

Michael Jeffcoat: Would this work on a 86 ram 159

snoman6367: What would it be if it was brake fluid leaking from that exact wheel drum like you are showing? Mine just started leaking and it is coming out fast

spelunkerd: You make an excellent point, I agree. I am having other problems with this vehicle, and so at this stage I am putting out fires rather than doing active preventive maintenance. I have now replaced three of the four axle seals in this vehicle and the fourth may be just around the corner. If it turns out you were right I'll give you a shout out (grin).

spelunkerd: Yeah. This was prompted by a provincial vehicle inspection, and it was the one thing that I have to thank them for noticing (before my brake pads were contaminated).

zx8401ztv: You made that look easy, i bet they dont allways play ball :-) For some daft reason i was saying "dont fall off C clip" as if it was a live video, i think i must have mental issues lol :-) Smashing tutorial :-)

spelunkerd: Thank you guys. I appreciate the feedback.

spelunkerd: Thank you!

spelunkerd: Thank you, Andrew.

spelunkerd: Thanks, good luck, Paul.

spelunkerd: For some strange reason, I like the smell of gear oil in the morning (grin). Thanks for your kind remark.

spelunkerd: I'm glad it helped, thanks for the feedback.

spelunkerd: Good luck!

MrKingsniper22: Well I found this online on just answer.

spelunkerd: I'm glad it worked out, thanks for the feedback.

spelunkerd: I really like it, but it drinks gasoline like coolaid. Car parts are usually cheap and it's got lots of room to work on it. Generally reliable.

foxdmulder: Nice job. Thanks for posting.

Oliver maradiaga: thank you I have same job tomorrow

spelunkerd: Thanks, Richard.

Rowland Anderson: Nice job, great video!

spelunkerd: You might read the other comments, one of them suggesting replacing both sides at once so you don't have to do this again. Remember if you have a limited slip diff then you would need a friction modifier -- dealer can tell you from the VIN if there is no tag on the rear diff. Thanks for your comment.

mtuva2: why not kick it up one more step and spray brake cleaner on all the gears and clean them while the covers off?

spelunkerd: One C clip for each side. When you expose the C clip and have that short steel shaft removed, then kneel facing where the tire would be and push the hub straight inward. That takes a little tension off the C clip and it will drop out more easily.

Curt Simshauser: GREAT VIDEO

spelunkerd: Oh, sorry, I thought this was the front seal discussion video. Maybe try using a large socket or a block of wood. Mine went in pretty easily.

spelunkerd: Not sure. Does it look the same as mine? You may find some markings on the axle that identify it. If you own the vehicle I would find a manual, preferably a dealers manual that will help with repairs. Online pdf editions on ebay are sometimes a better deal.

spelunkerd: Thanks for the feedback.

Andrew Molina: Awesome

Paul Kuert: Great video. I have an Expedition but this is very similar to what my Haines manual described for a Ford. It's just better to see it in a video like yours first. Not sure if I have the pin to remove but will re-read before doing this later today. Thanks again.

Ricardo Tapia: Hey man sorry i couldnt get to you sooner but this video sure was pretty helpful i had no idea what C clips were untill this video iv searched many videos on YouTube because i didnt know how how to get my rear axle shaft out but this was the one that i was looking for although my project vehicle wasnt a dodge Ram but it was 1998 Firebird Trans Am but it turned out well the car runs great i fixed my bearings and Thank You once again spelunkerd.

spelunkerd: Funny you suggested that. Indeed, when I reviewed the video later I thought, too bad I didn't mention that the clips fall loose when you push the shaft medially. It's hard to add in audio later and I was hoping somebody would bring that up as a discussion point. So, it's great that you added the suggestion in the comments! I, and everybody who reads this, will be happy you said that.

Steve Rob: Well done !! I do notice the dodge trucks seems to have more repairs than chev and ford.

spelunkerd: I've not seen that before but the first thing I would check would be the diff fluid level and quality. I can't see a bad axle seal causing this but low fluid from a bad seal could cause general breakdown. That sound serious, I would check it out right away, with close attention to the spider assembly. By the way, we share the same last name, maybe we are related (grin). Dave

Richard Pico: An excellent vid. Well done.
