:4-dontknow:Hi everyone,
I have a 02 Ram 2500 that I belive has a rear wheel bearing out.
How big a job is it to replace and is it something that a person can do himself?
I pulled the rear hub off and the bearing and axle setup are different then what I have seen before. Not sure if I should take it to a garage or try to replace myself?????????

Thanks in advance for any information.

Yours is a HD rear end, likely the 11-1/2" (possibly 10-1/2") because it's diesel.
The bearings are IMO super easy to replace compared to the light duty rear axles.

Here is a link to the 11-1/2" rear end. The 10-1/2 is basically the same.

Are you comfortable partially disassembling your rear and pulling an axle? Do you have the necessary tools to pull the seal and bearing and replace them? I can give you the 2002 FSM if you want to try it.
