Help with infor on front axel

we got play in the dry shaft on passenger side of front axel and need to know why? it is a 97 dodge Ram 200 4wheel drive turbo diesel

ram 2500 sorry

It’s probably caused from a defective CV/U-joint.


ok but is there a bearing that holds the axel in place that i need to replace?

No. You don’t have to replace the bearing. You have to disassemble the steering knuckle to the point where that shaft can be removed and replaced.
