Front Axle Parts for 1994-1997 Dodge Ram 2500 & 3500
4x4 Trucks with Dana-Spicer Model 60 248 FBI Axles
The heavy-duty, Dana-Spicer, Model 60 248 Front Beam-Design Iron (FBI) axle was used on all 1994 to 1999 Ram 3500 4x4 1 Ton trucks regardless of engine, and most Ram 2500 trucks. For the 1994-1999 model years, the only Ram 2500/3500 4x4's which did NOT have the Model 60 were some 1994-1997 light duty, gas V8, Ram 2500 trucks with less than 8800 pound Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW). So if you have one of those light duty (usually 7700 lb. GVW) refer to our Dodge Model 44 Parts Page.

Tech Note: The GVW is listed on the build tag located on the door frame.

All the Dana 60 front axles used in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4x4's were factory equipped with a vacuum actuated Central Axle Disconnect (CAD) system. (continued below)

All 1994-1999 Dana 60 Front Axles in Dodge Ram trucks had a Bill of Material Number (BOM) stamped on a Build Tag (red arrow) attached to the differential by two of the differential cover bolts (yellow arrows) when the vehicle was shipped from the factory but, unfortunately, these tags are often missing on trucks that had prior differential service. The BOM number is a 6 digit number beginning with a 6 plus a dash number (ex: 610604-2). They can be used to determine not only the axle model, but also what components the axle was originally built with. We often ask for this number to insure we provide you with the exact parts you need for your truck.

Each different BOM number signifies an engineering part change which may be minor or major and may involve one or more parts. The dash number indicates the axle ratio. For 1994-1999 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks built for civilian use, 3.54 ratio is a -1, 4.10 ratio is -2.

  Anti-Lock Brakes: (If Equipped), 1994-1997 has external sensor attached to steering knuckle. Tone Ring is on outer axle shaft.

Axle Shafts for 1994-1997 Model 60 Axles
Broken Axle Shafts are not very common with the Model 60 unless a worn-out u-joint has been slapped around causing the shaft yokes to give way. Replacing your outer axle shaft is one of those things that is bound to happen while living in the rust belt or cruising ocean beach areas that can cause the rusted threads to strip from the shaft while removing the outer nut. Choose from our full range of genuine original equipment axle shafts which feature both precise fit and great strength.

Ball Joints for 1994-1997 Dodge Model 60
The Ball Joints used in your 1994-1997 Dodge Model 60 are not used in any other year or model of Dodge truck. While they are not as long-lasting as the King Pin design used on 1993 and older trucks, they are much more durable than those used on 2000 and newer Rams because both upper and lower Ball Joints are weight carrying. The Ball Joints are pressed into the steering knuckle simplifying service. Ball Joint Tool Kit TS4511 7 Piece Ball Joint Tool Kit is recommended for safety and speed, but other press methods can be used with appropriate safety precautions. All our Ball Joints for this application are genuine Dana parts. Choose from either genuine original equipment factory lubed Ball Joints, or Greaseable Ball Joints. Read Tech Notes below.

Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1: There is insufficient clearance between the axle shaft and upper greaseable ball joints to leave in a grease fitting. After greasing, you need to remove the 90° fitting and replace it with a supplied threaded plug. The procedure is tedious but not difficult unless you are "all thumbs".

Dan The Gear Man® Tech Note 2: The good news is Ball Joint replacement on these trucks is pretty easy unless the front end of your Dodge has never been apart before. Getting rusted-in wheel hubs broke free from the knuckle on your 1994-1997 Ram can be a REAL WITCH! However, not near as bad as a 2000 or newer!

Brake Parts For Ram with Model 60 Front Axle

Brake Splash Shields deflect road splash and grit from the brake rotors. Rust from road salts or corrosive soils is the most common cause for replacement. The shields can also be bent or torn from hitting rocks off road or from accident damage. Another cause of wrecked shields and also spacers is incorrect service procedures including driving a chisel between the hub and knuckle during disassembly.

The front Brake Shields and Spacers for 1994 to 1997 trucks are the same for both 4 wheel Antilock Brake Systems (ABS) and rear wheel ABS.

To help get you back on the road after you get rescued, we stock genuine original equipment Dana-Spicer Front Axle Differential Parts and Gear Sets for your hard working 3/4 ton Ram 2500 or 1 ton Ram 3500 4x4 truck.

Hub Assemblies
Unitized Front Wheel Bearing and Hub Assemblies for 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997 Dodge Ram 4X4 trucks with the Dana-Spicer Model 60 front axle. This will include ALL 1994-1997 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 Cummins Diesel and V10 trucks, and all gas V8 4x4 trucks except 1994-1997 light duty Ram 2500 under 8800 GVW. The front wheel bearings on 1994-1997 Dodge 4x4 3/4 and 1 ton Diesel and Heavy-Duty gas engine trucks are of unitized construction. They are not serviceable and no individual replacement parts are available for them. If your front wheel bearings are noisy or loose, you need to replace the hub and bearing assembly with one of these original equipment hub assemblies featuring Timken® Bearings and those all important studs. For 1994-1997 Dodge Ram 2500 and Ram 3500, there are only two front 4x4 hub choices: Single Rear Wheels(SRW) or Dual Rear Wheels (DRW). Since the 1994-1997 ABS sensor is external and it reads off a tone ring on the axle shaft, it does not matter if your truck has or does not have 4-wheel ABS when selecting the correct hub.

Ring and Pinion Kits
Unless your axle has run out of oil or it is severely abused, you will probably never have to replace your original ring and pinion set. However, if you do need one, we stock original equipment Dana-Spicer Gear Sets for your Ram's Model 60 front axle. These genuine gear sets are not cheap when compared to the host of knock off Asian import gear sets being pushed into the market place by vendors focused on getting the cheapest stuff they can. Well, like anything, you get what you pay for. I have been setting up Dana Gear Sets since the mid 1970's to date, and I have never had a setup problem with a genuine Dana-Spicer Gear Set. The same is not true for the aftermarket parts. Besides having sloppy machining, most aftermarket gears are not made to use the Dana factory set up tools, so a person usually has to apply some blood-boiling "Kentucky Windage" to the setup procedure to make progress.

Seals and Seal Kits

Successfully installing a CAD side axle shaft seal without the correct Seal Installer has about the same chance of success as buying a winning lottery ticket. Makeshift methods don't usually get the job done due to the restricted area you need to work in, and the amount of compression the seal will be subjected to.

The right side seal can be replaced without disassembling the left side or removing the differential. However, to replace the left seal, you must take apart both the left and right sides AND remove the differential case (the part the ring gear is bolted to) from the axle housing. Sorry, guys, it is physically impossible to replace the seals from the outside!

Our most popular Kit is by far the QK4620, because it gives you the versatility to use it on Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 trucks, plus it allows you to offset the seals to miss grooves worn in the axle shafts.
Many Shade Tree mechanics and some pro techs prefer our QK4698 because it takes the guess work out of how deep the seal will be installed, but, it will not work on Model 44 axles in Ram 1500 or light Duty gas Ram 2500 trucks due to restricted clearance.
Need More Help Choosing the Correct Kit?
First, do you want to replace just the right Seal Only? If so, select a Right Side Only Kit
.
Do you already have factory Dodge Seals from the dealer? If so, select one of our TS Tool only Kits.
Ever going to work on the lighter CAD equipped Dodge 4x4s with the Model 44? If yes, get QK4620.
Do you believe in Murphy's Law? (anything that can go wrong will go wrong) Yup, than select QK4698.
