I have an '02 Ram 1500 4x4. Recently, the right front axle broke inside of the boot. As far as removal goes, I understand it to be basically sliding out of the front differential (but perhaps there's a locking ring? I'm not sure).
Is it possible to drive without it temporarily? Also, is there anything I should be concerned about as far as the removal process goes? I have a jack against the lower control arm (to hold tension off the torsion bars). I've been told that shops can get a half-shaft, isn't this synonymous with " CV joint"?
