You have to pull the wheels off, then the brake drums from the rear axle. The axles have to come out to get the rear differential out...if you are trying to replace the ring gear and pinion gear. This is a job that requires a pro. The reinstalling of the new ring and pinion gear must be set exactly right...or it will HOWL..Grind itself up...and fail. Often when this Type job has to be is easier for you to buy a good rear end that comes Drum To Drum from a salvage yard much cheaper...and its easy to unbolt the old rear end...and bolt the other back in...and go on down the road. For me, it has been cheaper everytime. Just be sure to change the rear gear oil yourself...or have the lube shop switch it out ( its Cheap). Be sure you fit the axle breather tube back to the nipple on the rearend. It runs from the axle up above to the frame and the end loops back down in a upside down J . It keeps the water out of the rearend, when you back down the ramp to launch your boat. Water in the rearend is the number one cause of rearend failures. Driving in high water will also do the same.

How do you replace the carrier bearing on the drive shaft of a 1988 dodge Dakota?

Many carrier bearing assemblies must be pressed off and on the shaft. Sometimes it's best to take the entire driveshaft off the vehicle and have a driveline specialist shop replace all of the u-joints and the carrier bearing at the same time. For that matter, they don't usually charge much to remove and replace the driveshaft so it's often not worth the trouble to do it yourself.

You will need to remove the spindle from the vehicle and use an arbor press to separate spindle from bearing and bearing from hub. There is also a snap ring (circlip) you will need to remove. Use the press to reassemble. If you do not have an arbor press, remove the spindle and bring to a machine shop for pressing.
