WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO CHANGING REAR PINION BEARING

2003 Dodge Ram • 142,000 miles

I have a 2003 dodge ram that needs the pinion bearing replaced in the rear end how hard is it and what are the steps?

The entire differential has to be removed to remove the pinion bearings. They have to be pressed along with the carrier bearings. I do not suggest trying this at home as it is a specialized job and settings are critical for proper operation.
