American Axle & Manufacturing Inc. (AAM) has released a ball joint kit for some 2500 and 3500 model Ram trucks.
According to AAM engineering manager Greg Marsh, the front drive axle in the 2500 and 3500 Ram truck changed in the 2013.5 model year. Part of that modification included replacing the ball joints.
AAM’s new ball joint kit for 2013.5 and newer 2500 and 3500 RAM trucks with a front 9.25-inch beam axle includes the upper and lower ball joint, ball joint seal, nuts, and wheel hub bolts.
Marsh says that additional changes in the 2500 and 3500 RAM truck models include the ring and pinion gears, differential cases and other internal components. AAM will soon make these items available for purchase.
