Front Axle Parts for 2000-2002 Dodge Ram 2500 and Ram 3500
4x4 Trucks with Dana-Spicer Model 60 248 FBI Drive Axles
Dodge Ram 2500 and Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 trucks for the model years of 2000, 2001, and 2002 all use Dana-Spicer Model 60 248 Front Beam Iron (FBI) drive axles. Outwardly, these solid beam axles look very similar to the preceding models; however, relativity few parts were carried over from the 1999 and prior axle. Some of the changes include larger axle shafts, different axle shaft seals, bigger CAD splines, axle mounted ball joints, new tie rod/drag link configuration, different brakes, and redesigned wheel hubs.

During the manufacturing for this generation of axle, further changes were made including new pinion seal designs and a new pinion yoke. Additionally, in mid 2002, the Central Axle Disconnect feature was dropped so the gear set, front driveshaft, and transfer case chain will always rotate when the vehicle is in motion. This last change has both positive and negative aspects. On one hand, getting rid of the sometimes temperamental CAD system increases 4x4 reliability but the downside is these late production trucks generally get poorer fuel mileage due to the constant parasitic draw of the entire front drivetrain when the vehicle is in 4x2 mode.

Axle Identification
Dana Axle ID Tag All 2000-2002 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. 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 2000-2002 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks built for civilian use, 3.54 ratio is a -1, 4.10 ratio is -2. Air Force Tow Vehicles all have 7.17:1 gear ratios and the BOM has a -1. Unfortunately, BOM tags are often missing on trucks that had prior differential service so you may have to call your Dodge dealer with your trucks VIN to determine what your truck has.

Axle Shafts
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
We have Dana-Spicer Ball Joint Kits for all 3/4 ton 2500 and 1 ton 3500 4x4 trucks. Replace those worn ball joints on your Heavy-Duty Dodge Truck yourself! Please see Tech Note Below

Make ball joint removal and reinstallation easy with the optional TS1065 Ball Joint Press Set! Unlike older trucks, the 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 Press and Tooling tools when removing your old ball joints and pressing the new ones in, it can be a REAL WITCH on 2000-2002 trucks without it!

Dan The Gear Man® Tech Note: Ball Joint failures on 2000-2002 Ram Trucks is a reoccurring problem that will probably plague these trucks for their entire life due to the size of the Ball Joints and the steering geometry of the 2000-2002 Dana 60 Front axle.

The Upper and Lower Ball Joints on these axles are at different angles, in other words the vertical axis of the Upper and Lower Ball Joints are neither in-line or parallel to each other. To compensate for the different arcs of each Ball Joint during turns, the modest sized, straight shank, .855" diameter stud of the greaseable Upper Ball Joint is vertically floating in a plastic sleeve. Consequently, the Upper Ball Joint does not support any weight, it merely keeps the knuckle in place. On these axles, the Upper Ball Joint is not really a Ball Joint at all, instead it is a floating King Pin that is smaller in diameter then King Pins found on 1966-1981 Ford F100 4x2 1/2 ton trucks and light 3/4 ton trucks with GVW's of 4,700 lbs-6,900 lbs.

The non-greaseable Lower Ball Joint is load bearing, in fact, the two Lower Ball Joints carry 100% of the front axle weight on your 2000-2002 Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500 truck. Dimensionally, the outside diameter of the Lower Ball Joint is only 3.5% larger than the Ball Joints used on 1972-1986 Jeep CJ's (and other light-duty models of that era) which has somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of the front axle weight of the Dodge Ram, plus both the Upper and Lower Ball Joints on the CJ are load bearing. In addition, the Ball Joints used on older models like the Jeep CJ and 1994-1999 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500* shared the same vertical center line axis and were pre-loaded to compensate for wear. With the 2000-2002 front axle steering geometry using differing Ball Joint angles, no preload is possible, therefore, any wear means loose Ball Joints.

Yes, lack of lubrication with the non-greaseable factory lower Ball Joints can be a factor; however, very few of the failed lower Ball Joints we cut apart are suffering from a lack of lubrication. Replacement Ball Joints in both greaseable and non-greaseable versions are available from us, plus there are even offset upper Ball Joints out there (which in my experience is both short-lived and of limited use). Installing Greaseable Ball Joints and regularly greasing them may provide longer service life, but with the 2000-2002 axle, chances are you will still need to replace the Ball Joints every three to five years. One would not mind the relatively short Ball Joint life so much if these trucks steered better than previous models, were not subject to "Death Wobble", or had longer tire life.

I do not find any allowable Ball Joint tolerances in my Factory Dodge Ram Truck Service Manuals. Generally, with a solid axle, any side to side play is grounds for replacement. Some slight vertical play is probably acceptable for these years.

*1994-1999 Dodge Ram trucks with the Dana 60 Front Axle have Lower Ball Joints that are nearly 10% larger than the 2000-2002 axle. Average Ball Joint life for 1994-1999 trucks is close to 150,000 miles or 7 to 10 years. All 4 Ball Joints for those years carry weight and are pre-loaded to compensate for wear and dampen steering shocks.

 
Brake Parts
Brake parts and steering are the two places you don't want to compromise on. The brake related parts we carry for your 2000, 2001, or 2002 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton or 1 ton truck are all genuine original equipment manufacturer parts that meet or exceed any applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard at the time of manufacture. No junk, and no Chinese copied parts.

One thing that has always amazed me is that aftermarket manufacturers such as those who supply most parts from chain stores are under no legal obligation to produce or sell brake parts that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Standards. Interesting, huh?

Differentials and Differential Parts
2000-2002 Dodge Ram Dana 60 front axles have 1-3/8" diameter 32 spline inner axle shafts. These larger axle shafts are stronger than the 1-5/16" 30 spline axle shafts used on 1994 to 1999 Rams. The bad news is the 32 spline front shafts were only used on 2000-2001-2002 Ram Dana 60s, so price and parts availability for the internal gears and loaded cases suffers due to the limited use of these size axle splines. (Contemporary Ford Super Duty Dana 60 axles have 1-1/2" 35 spline axle shafts) Link to Our Dodge Web Page Index

The outer wiper V-Seal is the same for all 2000-2002 axles, but two different, non-interchangeable inner oil seals were used so if you have a 2000-2002 truck, you will need to verify which seal your truck needs before ordering.

Please refer to QU40397 page for more details and ordering information.

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.

QU40378 Dana 60 3.55 Front Ring and Pinion Set for 2000-2002 Dodge Ram Dana 60 is 100% genuine original equipment parts including: a 3.55:1 matched ring and pinion set, inner pinion bearing and cup, outer pinion bearing and cup, pinion slingers, pinion preload spacer (crush sleeve), pinion depth shims, differential shims, pinion seal, pinion nut, and ring gear bolts. See Tech Note on ratios below. Made in U.S.A. Order QU40271 Right Axle seal, QU40298 Left Axle Shaft Seal, and QU40184 Differential Bearing Set separately.
QU40492 Dana 60 4.10 Front Ring and Pinion Set for 2000-2002 Dodge Ram Dana 60 is 100% genuine original equipment parts including: a 4.10:1 matched ring and pinion set, inner pinion bearing and cup, outer pinion bearing and cup, pinion slingers, pinion preload spacer (crush sleeve), pinion depth shims, differential shims, pinion seal, pinion nut, and ring gear bolts. See Tech Note on ratios below. Made in U.S.A. Order QU40271 Right Axle seal, QU40298 Left Axle Shaft Seal, and QU40184 Differential Bearing Set separately.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note: You will often see the stock "fast" ratio called either 3.54 ratio or 3.55 ratio. Even Dana catalogs will list this gear set as a 3.54 in one catalog and 3.55 in the next. Actual tooth count is 39 ring gear teeth and 11 pinion gear teeth, which makes the true ratio 3.545, so technically 3.55 is correct once rounded to the nearest ratio. The 4.10 Ratio is a true 4.10 having 41 ring gear teeth and 10 pinion gear teeth. The higher the numeric ratio, the greater the gear reduction.
Seals and Seal Kits
Your 2000, 2001, or 2002 3/4 ton Dodge Ram 2500 or 1 ton Dodge Ram 3500 Dana-Spicer Model 60 front axle has a total of six serviceable seals. Three are oil seals and 3 are dust seals. There is an oil seal for each axle shaft that keeps your differential gear lube from pouring out the ends of the axle housing tubes (see QU40271, QU40298). Each inner axle shaft also has a QK4629 Dust Seal installed inboard of the u-joint yoke to keep crud out of the tubes. For the pinion yoke, differential lube is kept where it belongs by QU40348 Oil Seal which in turn is protected from road debris by QU40397 V-Seal. The wheel seals are not available separately as these vehicles have sealed, unitized, non-serviceable hub assemblies.
