Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1:
Steering Knuckles are considered a non-wear part and rarely need to be replaced unless the vehicle is subjected to a severe front end hit or the ball joint or tie rod nuts are improperly tightened.

Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 2:
The first time an AAM axle has to comes apart, it is usually an absolute WITCH to separate the wheel hub assemblies from the steering knuckle as AAM did not use any anticorrosion compound between the wheel hub flange and steering knuckle. I strongly suggest you get my color illustrated, step by step 6 page Tech Service Bulletin TSB4586 4x4 Dodge Truck Ball Joint Service 9.25 Axle so you know what you are getting into. Almost all the wheel hubs we sell for these AAM axles are to replace original hubs wrecked by slam bang disassembly methods. The good new is, if you properly reassemble your axle, the next time you need to take the hubs off, they will come right off with no trouble at all.

Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 3:
Unlike older trucks, AAM 9-1/4" Dodge Ram front axle ball joints are pressed into the axle itself, not the steering knuckle, so you can't use a shop press like the 94-99 trucks. I Strongly recommend you have the TS1082 Ball Joint Press Set when removing your old ball joints and pressing the new ones in.
