The steering knuckle has to be removed so you can use a ball-joint press to remove and install the ball joints. The drive axles must be removed so there will be enough room to get the steering knuckle to drop down far enough so it can be removed.

How would i know if my cv joint is going bad on my 94 ford ranger 2 wheel drive


A two wheel drive ranger does not have any c.v. Joints. It does have u joints in the rear drive shaft. Worn out u joints can cause vibrations at highway speeds, squeezing noises at low speeds, and in some cases a clunking noise when the transmiissin is placed in park or drive. You can check them by pulling the drive shaft and ratting the joint. If it is stiff or loose than they are likely bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I'm trying to replace my ball joints on my 1997 ford ranger and was wondering how I remove the axle shafts? Do I have to remove the whole front end?


No, but you might have to separate the tie rod ends as well as the lower ball joints. With the axle nut off, have someone use a long pry bar between the a-frame and the car frame or fender skirt to pull the a-frame down and separate the lower ball joint. Then swing the hub away from the truck until it clears the a-frame. Next, pull the axle from the hub and finally pull it straight out of the tranny. You might need a drip pan in case the tranny leaks with the axle out.

How do I replace a CV axle for a 1992 ford taurus


It's easier to put in a rebuilt axle. The steps are as follows
  1. Remove the brake caliper, pads, and rotor.
  2. Remove the axle nut.
  3. Remove the lower ball joint retaining bolt and separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle.
  4. Push the splined axle out of the knuckle.
  5. Then, use a pry bar to pop the axle shaft out of the transmission. Insert the new axle shaft and give it a tap with a hammer to pop the "C" clip into position.
  6. Then reverse the procedure.

Make sure you only do one side at a time. If you pull both axles, the side gears in the transmission can slip out of place, causing a real headache.

Remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram


That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings
