What do you think about this video?

thomasmovesinc: How much did this cost you 

StraightRavAge: Do you know if the procedures are the same for the 4th gen rams as well?? Thanks for any help!

Mitch Phillips: I was able to remove the axle using your method but I am unable to put a new axle back in. I can't seem to get it to compress down enough, almost need another 1/4 inch. Any ideas?

Chris Sarracino: Will this work for a 06 Durango AWD?

Anthony Tislau: You didn't have to pop the ball joint to get the axle in and out?? 

Rob Lienhart: i cant get my cv shaft to push through my hub. any tricks you might have. i have beaten on it with a sledge and it wont budge. 2004 1500 4x4

Fred Haskins: is this typical for a 07 ram 4x4

StraightRavAge: Btw, mine is a 2013 ram

Jose Leos: Is the driver side the same is the right side?

newmanman41: My makes sound whenever I make sharp turns could this be it

1A Auto Parts: What year is the Dodge Ram that your working on, and the series?

1A Auto Parts: HI Karl, Thanks for posting and watching our video. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @1foxisathome It should just slide into place. You may want to make sure that there isn't a piece of debris blocking it from going in.

hubbard771: I know right... I used a pry bar and a 4 wheeler pulling on this damn thing and it still wont pop off. This guy uses an 8" pry bar and taps it off.. I'll hop back on and let you know what works once I do manage to remove it.

Julie Blatz: mine too! HELP????

1A Auto Parts: The door lock actuators may be getting weak, or you may also want to check the wire harness between the drivers side door and the body of the truck, to see if there's a frayed wire that may be loosing power when you hit the switch for the rear doors. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

SC14: EXACTLY THE VID I NEEDED....THANK A MILLION!

Kenny Sutherland: I cannot get mine off on the differential side, what is the trick? it seems like i just need a quarter inch to go, but cannot get it to budge. any ideas

telepicker83: The half shaft that my 02 calls for in the parts stores is too short. Does anyone know how I can tell if/how it's been modified? Looks all stock...no lift, etc...

1A Auto Parts: @telepicker83 You may want to have your local dealer run your VIN# to see if it calls for a different part for some reason. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day!

78kitty: @Karl Daigle THANK YOU so much for posting the tip to seperate the upper ball joint! With this video & your tip I was finally able to remove the CV axle on a '04 Durango that was seized so tight I broke a 3-jaw puller, bent the screw on another & even used MAP torch on & it still wouldn't pop loose! Now I finally have room to get at the lower ball joint I need to replace.

tenobles: I have a 2002 ram 1500 4x4.... my axle seals ( where the cv axles are inserted into the main axle tube/ diff.) need to be replaced. I have the seals, and have searched every corner of the web hoping to find someone who has tackled this task.... to no avail.... the dealership told me that the front carrier has to be removed and a special tool was needed to remove the seals from inside the axle... but are reinstalled from the outside of course... makes no sense to me.....

1A Auto Parts: Normally you need a special to get the seals in and out. They do sit within the axle case to prevent leaks from the inside out.

ral819: Also, On my 2006, the hub nut is a 36mm. Check it first before you get started.

ral819: It looks easy here, it's not. Secondly, make sure you correctly diagnose what is going on with your truck. I replaced both the CV Joint and a Hub assembly on a 2006 SLT 4x4. The problem is still there and is actually the differential. I believe it's covered by the warranty. I'm out the bucks for a CV joint and Hub assembly plus install. My bad, don't let it happen to you....Be careful.

Brett Gayney: Thank you!

1foxisathome: what is the secret to getting the differential end of the shaft to slip over the retaining clip. The video shows it just popping right on, mine wont go on for anything. Also, if the bearing is seized in the steering knuckle, heat is necessary to remove it, a small soldering torch does the trick, very little heat needed

camdencountybrawler1: I cant the Axle off the differential! I been pushing and pulling and beating on that thing for 3 hours You just popped it off and pushed it right out. what the heck am I not doing right?

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for checking us out. Have a great day. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Butter Bean: great vid, do you guys have a video on how to replace the drivers/left front axle u-joint on a 1999 1500 ram. my u-joint is bad and have to replace it. Thanks

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this particular repair.

Kenny Sutherland: I have a 2002 1500 quad cab like the one the video

benshivd: It should probably be mentioned .I guess you maybe did not know. Those hubs on these trucks are on recall for lubrication / failure issue.Other wise its a 500-700 dollar repair.

1A Auto Parts: It should come free like shown in this video. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

andyffemti: Mine is stuck on there horribly. I can't get it to even back 1mm away from the differential.

oASSAULTo: you should have videos for BMWs!!

Mark Mouton: i have a 2002dodge ram 1500 my power locks work on the front dooors but on the back doors it doesn't unlock the doors all the way. The locks disengage partially not all the way. I have to manually pull up the locks to open the doors. What do I do in fxiing this problem?

1A Auto Parts: If there's not enough clearence room to slide the axle out you may need to remove the lower ball joint to slide the axle out.

Peter Z: I cannot get the old axle off of the differential. I have been bangin on my crow bar for 3 hours not and has baley moved. There has got to be some other way to get it out. Or is there something I am doing wrong?

1A Auto Parts: What year is the Dodge Ram that you're working on?

inktoxicated: i had shop change front cv's but on the front passenger side the cv pulled out with the stub axle/bearing? stuck to it? is that normal?
