1 - simplest and cheapest method- replace the axle 2- replace the CV joints and boots 3- lots of unnecessary work, very expensive - check the joints and replace as needed, replace boots
The 2000 Ram had u joints, not cv joints at the front axle.
Can you show me pictures on a dodge neon 1998 on how to remove and replace a front axle.
Instruction for Mazda 323 (09/89 to 07/94) in German language including many pictures you will find at www.autoschrauber.de/art/000069/achsmanschette _wechseln.htm . www.popuplights.co.UK have a step by step guide for some related areas. it might be worth the look.
tire off, brakes off, tie rod off, disconnect strut, and a few holding bolts. axle will slide out with a little bang from a hammer or a little pull if your lucky
The best way is to replace the complete halfshaft/axle assembly with a rebuilt unit. You will be done in no time. Replacing the boots is a chore and the cost of a rebuilt axle isn't much more than the boot kits.
take it off, buy a new one, put it on. it worked for me!
Sometimes the boots crack in a seam and hard to find. If there is grease there is a rip.
'''legal term.''' usually when the boots go bad the entire axle needs replacement for safety reasons. you don't know how much debris ,dust,water and or contaminants when in to the axle and it will just eat those joins away causing axle failure (vehicle accidents). '''do it your self term.''' on the other hand if is your personal vehicle and you doing it your self you could buy a kit at an autoparts store and yeah just replace the boots and grease them up.
Not easy!!! Get a manual on your car and it will help on the next repair.
