Front Axle Parts for 1998-1999 Dodge Ram 2500 & 35004x4 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 1998 and 1999 Ram 2500 3/4 ton and Ram 3500 1 Ton 4x4 trucks regardless of engine. 1998 marked the first year that Dodge did not offer any 3/4 ton truck with a Model 44 front axle since civilian type 3/4 ton 4x4s were introduced in 1957.

All the Dana 60 front axles used in 1998 and 1999 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4x4's were factory equipped with a vacuum actuated Central Axle Disconnect (CAD) system whereas, the preceding 1994-1997 axles although, very similar had a number of significant optional integrated front wheel ABS sensors and redesigned steering linkage.

The Dana 60 Front Axle was substantially redesigned for the 2000 model year. Despite the outward similarity of the new axles, relatively few parts are interchangeable between 1994-1999 era axles and 2000-2002 axles.

Axle Identification

All 1994-1999 Dana 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. 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.

Axle Shafts for 1998-1999 Model 60 Axles

top_page
product note

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 1998-1999 Dodge Model 60

top_page
product note

The Ball Joints used in your 1998-1999 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-Spicer parts. Choose from either genuine original equipment factory lubed Ball Joints, or Greaseable Ball Joints. Read Tech Notes Below.

tech note

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 1998-1999 Ram can be a REAL WITCH! However, not near as bad as a 2000 or newer!

Brake Parts

top_page
product note

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 Brake Shields and Spacers for 1998 and 1999 trucks will differ depending upon if your truck has or does not have 4 wheel Antilock Brake Systems (ABS).

Differentials and Differential Parts

product note

Differential problems with Model 60 front axles are not all that common. But Murphy, of Murphy's Law* really likes busted differentials, so when you hear that loud, heart-stopping, ominous BANG from the front axle as your 4x4 lurches to a grinding stop, you just KNOW it is one big dose of bad news. To help get you back on the road after you get rescued, we are stocking 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

top_page
product note

Unitized Front Wheel Bearing and Hub Assemblies for 1998 and 1999 Dodge Ram 4X4 trucks with the Dana-Spicer Model 60 front axle. This will include ALL 1998-1999 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 4x4 trucks regardless of engine or vehicle weight rating. The front wheel bearings on 1998-1999 Dodge 4x4 3/4 and 1 ton 4x4 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 1998-1999 Dodge Ram 2500 and Ram 3500, there are a total of six front 4x4 hub choices depending upon the type of Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), and if your truck has Single Rear Wheels(SRW) or Dual Rear Wheels (DRW). For 1998 and 1999 model year Dodge Ram 2500 and Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 trucks, the ABS sensor and tone ring are internally mounted in the hub. Since the sensor is specific to left and right sides, our hub selection for 1998 and 1999 has all six possible choices.
APPLICATIONS:
1998-1999 Front Hub Choices for 1998 & 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 and Dodge Ram 3500 with Single Rear Wheels:
Use QK4527 for either side on trucks with rear wheel ABS
Use QK4552 for the right side on trucks with 4-wheel ABS
Use QK4554 for the left side on trucks equipped with 4-wheel ABS
1998-1999 Front Hub Choices for 1998 & 1999 Dodge Ram Dodge Ram 3500 with Dual Rear Wheels:
Use QK4578 for either side on trucks with rear wheel ABS

Ring and Pinion Kits

top_page
product note

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.

Near the shores of Crow Lake in the Beartooth Mountains, Jet, the mountain horse, takes a lunch break after a hard morning of Elk hunting. The temperature is about 35° but the bright, noon sun makes it feel warmer. The horse side of saddle blanket is towards the sun allowing some of the sweat to dry. The hunter orange pack was made for dual use as a backpack or slung from the saddle horn. Between the gear in the pack and that still on the saddle, Jet and his human partner are set for up to 3 days in the mountains in reasonable comfort and can pack out all the meat from a boned out elk or 2 quarters without any extra gear or horses than what you see here.
