DblRam Fuel-up Log

1997 Dodge Ram 3500

Showing a single fuel-up

May 5 2021

Rear brake shoes, drum brake hardware, cylinders, and drums replaced on both wheels; both rear hubs' bearings cleaned and repacked; both rear hubs' oil seals replaced. Brand-new nylock nuts and locking wedges used on each hub, as well as a brand-new metal gasket for each half-shaft. I replaced the stock Dodge brake cylinders with GM ones spec'd for the same Dana 80 axle; the GM ones are supposed to have increased braking power. Rear diff oil changed, also (Mobil-1 full synthetic 75w-90 limited slip), since you have to drain the axle in order to remove the rear hubs. I believe that either the brake cylinder or the axle oil seal (or maybe both) have been leaking for a long time on the driver's side; it was an incredible mess.
