Q:is there a video on how to change out lower ball joints on a 2001 dodge ram 1500
A:Sorry, with reference to your inquiry on the OTC Honda Lower Ball Joint Tool Set -part# OTC7996, right now we are unable to provide you with a video on replacing the ball joints on your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. However, we are pleased to provide you with the instructions on replacing the ball joints on your vehicle. Park the Dodge on a level surface, then apply the parking brake. Loosen the front wheel lugs the tire iron. Lift the front of the truck with the jack and put jack stands under the frame. Take off the wheels with the tire iron. Put the jack underneath the lower control arm and lift it up until it touches the arm. Unbolt the brake caliper mounted on the steering knuckle with the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket, then hang the caliper by the front frame with the mechanics wire. Pull the rotor off of the hub. Remove the cotter pins in the upper and lower control arms with the needle-nose pliers. Unbolt the upper control arm from the steering knuckle with an open-end wrench, then hit the side of the knuckle with the sledgehammer until the upper control arm separates from the knuckle. Unbolt the lower control arm from the steering knuckle with an open-end wrench, then strike the knuckle with the sledgehammer until you can pull the knuckle off of the ball joint. Carefully lower the jack to release tension on the spring. Install the Ball joint remover around the upper control arm ball joint. Tighten the threaded end on the tool with the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket until the ball joint pops out of the upper control arm. Repeat this process for the lower control arm ball joint.
