We stock a complete line of Double Cardan front CV driveshaft parts for 2008-2018 Ram 4500 and Ram 5500 4x4 trucks. These Dodge 4x4s use a Double-Cardan Constant Velocity (CV) Joint at the transfer case end, and a conventional single Carden universal joint with a flange yoke and axle end for the Front Driveshaft's. While the basic configuration of the shafts is the same for all years, the actual components used will vary depending upon the year and engine/transmission combination.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note: The Tech Term "Cardan" refers to a conventional cross type universal joint. A Double-Cardan CV joint is a constant velocity joint that has two Cardan type universal joints as component parts. For more information on this subject, see TSB3500 Universal Joint History, Types, General Service Methods, and Inspection or TM3000 Driveshaft Service Manual.

We stock a complete line of original equipment quality replacement parts for rebuilding your Dodge Ram 4500 or Ram 5500 Front Double-Cardan Constant Velocity (CV) Joint. The front CV shafts used on the Ram 4500 and Ram 5500 are NOT interchangeable with those used in Ram 2500 or Ram 3500 models although some of the components are.
The 1/2" diameter Centering Stud on your Ball Stud Tube Yoke (QU40864) MUST be in good condition to successfully rebuild your CV joint (See TSB3503, TM3000, or TM3318). If there is visible grooving or if the stud is worn more than 0.002"-.003" you will need to replace your Ball Stud Tube Yoke. While not difficult for a skilled machinist, this will require lathe work, welding, and straightening of the shaft. It is also strongly recommended you have the shaft rebalanced after assembly.
