1A Auto Parts: @ Kyler Wetherington
Thank you for watching. On this application you can reuse the spindle nut.
Here is a link to the parts used in this video on our website.
Frank Rendulic: Just finished one. Had to undo the upper ball joint to get clearance to
remove the half-shaft inner end. One plus to this was also gaining
clearance to remove the hub bolts with an impact wrench. Outside of that,
the video was spot on.
Donovan Van Gorkom: Help, I have been hammering away at the old hub assembly for more than two
hours with a 4lb and then 6lb sledge. The hub is dented up from all the
hitting but can't separate the rusted old hub. I am not hitting gently.
The knuckle is aluminum on this 2002 2wd dodge. I have added tons of
penetrating fluid over the course of the hours, but the hub has not budged
AT ALL. I took a break after an hour of hammering, and built a punch from
some reducing bushings (black pipe) stacked from 2" down to 1". I've been
hammering at that for another hour, but still nothing. I am applying
gentle heat to the knuckle now as I don't want to make the aluminum brittle
from heating, and then I will try some more. Any hints????
MrWillis5719: I just cant help it but I love that Pontiac in the back ground.Thanks How
much are your hubs? 02 ram 4wheel And I subscribed I just got off the phone
with the dealer he said there are two different kinds for the truck, and
they want $150.00 for 1 of my truck..I see now how much Oh well disregard
every thing except the first part, I just got off the phone with your
wonderful staff and ordered a set of bearing hubs, Take care.
towerhillbilly: Just did mine.I couldn't get the axle out so I just undid the top control
arm ( one nut and one whack upwards).
Push the axle back i n flush with the hub and the whole assembly can be
cranked around as needed to remove and reinstall the three back bolts.
Thanks for the video...A real confidence builder.
Don Liscotti: Informative video, but I wish you'd stated that it was a 4wd in the title,
I need the 2wd version, (no axle to remove) will keep looking for the 2 wd
Scott Hardman: Hey 1a auto today I got the hub in the mail and I did everthing you guys
did in the vid but the old hub will not come off I have the everthing off
but the old hub what do I need to do I hit it I have pulled on it and it
will not come off I dont know what to do any help will be good I am going
out to buy 3 in 1 oil and see if the will help more the wd 30
Kevin Jones: I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 "2wheel drive", do you have a video to do the
front wheel bearings for my truck??
Darin Young: Working on mine right now. Thanks for the videos!
My inner CV was a bear to get off though. The internal retaining clip was
rusty, making it very difficult to pop the CV off. Used some PB blaster
and just wiggled and pulled for a while until it freed itself up. At that
point it pryed right off like in the video.
The hub is a pain...rusted stuck
Cuda Garage: Great video and extremely helpful!! Thank you.
Kyler Wetherington: I am about to tackle this project soon. Is the spindle nut reusable or do
I need to replace it?
Drastic55: So I am unable to get out the axel shaft. When I go to pop it out with a
crow bar it stops just prior to the end of the slotted shaft it fits on and
won't budge anymore no matter how hard I pry.....any suggestions? Yours
seem to come out quite easily. I'm running an 06 ram
Josh Fickling: Why do you pull the axle?
bcidernable: Thanks for producing this video. I guess I know what I'll be doing this
weekend. I just had one replaced about a month ago, and now I've got the
same symptoms. Sounds like I'm driving on nobbie tires. Do you think it's
likely to have two fail so close together (95k miles) or that the one
replaced was detective?
Mike Steckbauer: A good way to break the hub free is back the hub bolts out a quarter inch
and then hold a socket on the bolt while someone turns the steering wheel.
that will press the socket against the bolt and hub housing. popped mine
buggsyspam: Good video. I appreciate it, especially since you give torque numbers. I
need to do this, but I am expecting a big fight. I ended up paying someone
to do the rear breaks because I was only able to get one wheel off the hub.
The wheels them selves were so rusted on, I could not get them loose with a
15 lb sledge. :/ You didn't mention putting on any thread locker. Is that
not really necessary?
Wayne Beck: I like the video. Do you have to remove the axel to do this if the truck is
Cris Butler: Great how to video, thanks my dodge just started growling yesterday...now
at least i know what im in for.
Takeachance: Thank you for the wonderful informational video. I was able to apply the
steps to my 06' Ram. The only problem I have is the hub is rusted and I
don't seem to be able to break it free.
san379 .: already had my bearings replaced.. 730$
1A Auto Parts: @VileLabyrinth001 Thanks for checking us out!
1A Auto Parts: It should come free for you like we show in the video.
Mike Marshall: Is the purpose of removing the axle to gain access to the three hub bolts?
Shane Sullivan: @1aauto - Well I thought it was done... discovered all my caliper bolts
stressed and broke off in the bolt they thread into... I tourqued to 25
ft/lbs... what did i do wrong? Was still easy and I appreciate the video...
Ricky Osteen: Is this the same for a 2wd model too?
1A Auto Parts: @tonyjoke If it's giving you a hard time on the transmission end you can
use a small pry bar to help push it out of the transmission. It shouldn't
take a whole lot of pressure to remove it. Hope this helps you out.
Jeff Emmons: I just removed the top a-arm from the knuckle and was able to remove it
with no problem. Thanks for all your help.
Denna Tracy: I know with a 98 dodge ram the bolts are a 9/16ths star bolt and it is
impossible to get off the truck the three bolts to the hub assembly is what
im speaking of
1A Auto Parts: If you have the older style ram with the cone style bearings, you would
have to replace them and repack them with your hand.
8SEC6SPD: wow cool video, nice to see this type of detail for some folks who aren't
too sure. I have a rubbing sound which is cyclical, and the sounds speeds
up and slows down as i acxcelerate and/or decelerate. i guess next thing to
do is to confirm it is the wheel bearing. at this point I am not certain.
the last time i had it replaced by a shop, which is unfortunately out of
business. i don't drive my truck much, and it appears to be the wheels
bearing on the drivers side. i am going to check it.
1A Auto Parts: Your Dodge Magnum may be a different process. You may be able to apply some
of the basic steps shown in this video to your application. 1aauto.com
DriftingFWWA: Nice video. However I don't think it's necessary to pull out the entire
axle, I think you can just knock it out of the hub, turn the hub a bit and
pop the end of the axle out of the way to get to the three bolts behind the
1A Auto Parts: @OAM6988 Yes it should be the same if not very close to the 4WD minus the
Jimboh99100: @docdave1978 Had to remove the upper "A" arm from the wheel assembly then
it was easy to remove and put the axle back on.
1A Auto Parts: The driver side and passenger side are going to be the same for the R&R of
vmx1200: The video shows you pulling the CV joint/tranny side first, then pulling
the axle out of the hub.(removal step) I am having the exact same issue
finaddict1969: Great video, got me out of a jam Thanks!!!!!!!!!
Scot Guber: Thanks for the video. Very helpful. I followed the instructions. My CV axle
would not come out as shown but the easy fix to that is to remove the tie
rod and the upper A-arm and the wheel assembly fold away giving very easy
access for removal of the axle. Only added 15 minutes to the project.
DK62: I have a 2004 dodge ram 3500 with a rubbing sound in the drivers side area.
Do you think this is what I am looking at replacing? Also, will your video
here be the same on my hd vehicle? Thanks
adamsjuicedup47: Is this similar to a 95 ram ram 2500
Justin Shearer: would it be the same on a 2wd as you did on this 4wd just minus out the
1A Auto Parts: @SDroogers If you're having trouble on the hub bearing end, try to let the
suspension hang down as far as it will go to see if it helps.
Riley Tucker: Great video, everything was going perfect but I can just not get the
drivers side front axle out of the diff. Mines a 2008, do you know if there
is anything holding it in, inside the front diff??
MrElbowgrease: 1A Auto, thanks for your wonderful video. I replaced my passenger side
easily following your directions. But I cannot get the half shaft off on
the drivers side? Is it different I have an 03 ram 1500 4x4. Thanks!
docdave1978: Just like directme2002 I haven't been able to get my axle off the passenger
side. The axle gets stuck with about a 1/4" to go. Are there any secrets to
getting it to separate from the differential as fast as in the video?
Suspension hanging? Should the wheel be turned and in which direction? Any
help is appreciated, the local guy was $350 to do both wheels not including
MrPhatboy1981: is this the same setup as the 2005 magnum se?
1A Auto Parts: @nomeddeeps The axle should come out of the hub as shown in the video. If
the transmission end of the axle is fighting you a little bit, you can use
a pry bar to help push it out of the transmission, it shouldn't take much
pressure to come free from the tranny. Hope this helps you out.
VileLabyrinth001: I just did one today at work..I usually just knock the axle in enough to
get to the bolts for hub..and the customer watching me the whole
time..frustrating to say the least.
