You are watching: 2001 dodge ram 1500 rear differential torque specs
Hey I understand there"s around a thousands threads top top this so first off permit me apologize because that being either remote or lazy reason I didn"t uncover info top top it. But I merely wanted the talk specs because that front & behind diff cover bolts? ns hear a million times just make castle tight however I have actually some O.C.D. Worries & thats not gonna perform for me. Ns must gain a numerical worth for me to torque those tiny buggers down or I"ll be reasoning did ns make them every tight sufficient or too tight? I"m taking a road trip & wanna swap out fluid before I head out. Many thanks to all in advance.:smileup:
Ok for this reason I"ll reply to mine self. Together per the dealership the behind diff bolts obtain a speak of 32ft lbs. Fronts lock don"t have actually a spec because that so they usually torque it under till the sealant starts to push out. I likewise hear they have actually a leg for sale actual cheap LOL. What crap. Yet at the very least I have the rear specs.
2019 evade Charger SXT 3.6/auto2018 ram 1500 2wd 3.6/auto 8 speed"Life"s hard, it"s harder if your stupid." exactly how would girlfriend know?:4-dontknow:
I appreciate all the feed back. It"s every done & buttoned up. Ns popped the behind cover turn off & cleaned both adjustment surfaces w/ a coffee & some steel wool making use of some brake cleaner to aid in having a clean & no contaminated surface for mine silicon (made sure to monitor instructions ~ above silicon). Ns made sure nothing acquired inside the housing & offered the right stuff black color silicon from permatex come seal her all up. Overcome pattern tightened all the bolts come snug & then torqued every one of them under to 32 ft lbs. Obtained the behind fill plug open & left the behind to sit & cure because that a when longer. Went front & traction the front skid plate turn off & dumped the former diff fluid. Increase front there"s just a drainpipe & to fill plug. No reason to pull apart the housing. I"m not also sure on these trucks if thats even feasible due to their design. Therefore snugged back the drain plug & began to to fill the former diff w/ amsoil severe equipment 75-90 weight it says on amsoils website prior diff takes aprox 2.3 pints to fill. I provided aprox 1.25 quarts so thats aprox 2.3 pints. The front started to drip out then ns sealed it increase then placed the bowl back. Then went ahead & threw in a new air filter & then went earlier to the behind diff & started filling the up. Very first 4oz the mopar friction modifier because that my lim slip rear, then used roughly 2.5 quarts the amsoil 75-140 severe equipment which is as amsoils site recommends 4.6 pints. Mine cross match capacity calculations are guestimates due to the truth that the rear diff forced the friction comprehensive & the prior wasn"t made to be fully opened. All in all simple but messy job that I.M.O. Is much better than speak a dealership would have actually done. :cowb:
