Hi

I have a 2002 RAM 1500 4X4 and the left side wheel bearing is gone. I have two questions... is it advisable to purchase one off EBay .. and what should the three bolts on the back and the axle bolt be torqued at when I reinstall.

Thanks

First, I imagine there are 4 bolts. Just like anything on Ebay make sure it is a reputable seller and you should be ok. I think the tq of the bolts is like 135. It is going to be a heck of a job getting it off so be prepared. Best to pull the whole spindle to have it pressed out.

Thanks for the reply.

I just had this one changed out just over a year ago. Had it done at the dealer .... no more of that. It's a hub and bearing assembly on this right ? The whole assembly should come off with the axle bolt and the three on the back. What would need pressed out ?

Ebay sellers Jeep Polaris and 1sharpsa are both dodge dealers and will ship USPS to Canada. I would recommend one of them. Torque on the bolts is 120ft lbs and the half shaft nut is 185lbs. Guys have used machine shop press to remove seized parts. Ex.spindle stuck in hub bearing, or hub bearing stuck in knuckle.

I tried to get my bering hub asembly off my 2500 recently to do my ball joints and I got shut down big time. I am going to have to pay to have it done as I don't have the proper tools. I can't get the spindle off without getting the bearing off first. The 1500's have a different design so if it is seized you will be able to get the spindle off.

your right 3 bolts torque is as above. ill save ya some bloody knuckles, take all bolts out except rear bottom one turn that one back in 5 turnes. take a deep well that fits loosely over bolt and place it on bolt and between axle housing and turn steering wheel to left and pinch it in place, now give the steering wheel a hard crank and bearing will pop right out. dont bother with the pos factory bearing get a good after market one

How about some recommendations for good aftermarket brands?

Thanks for all the info everyone. I ordered one off ebay for a third the price the dealer wanted. I'll give it a try as soon as it comes in.

mastertech .... That sounds like it might save a bunch of problems and time for me. I just don't know what you mean by "take a deep well that fits loosely over bolt and place it on bolt" sorry ...
