Hello All. Simple question for you-I've got an '05 2500 4x4 and the u-joint has a lot of slop in it. I've got 87,000 miles on it, nothing done that would void warranty work, but was wondering if a Dodge dealer will replace this part under a warranty? Is it 100K warranty on the engine?

Any add'l info regarding the warranty(s)would be appreciated. I dont know what types or whats covered.

I bought the truck used, was I supposed to fill out any paperwork to transfer the warranty?

Thank you much!

my truck only had a 70k mile warranty on the truck and it has the normal 100k one on the motor, i don't think unless you bought a extended warranty that you'll get that covered. please correct me if i'm wrong.

you can take your vin to the dealer and find out how much warranty is left.

Thanks Yoda, 70k is what I was thinking. I'm trying to get this fixed this weekend if it's not under warranty. I've called a few local dealers service dept, but go figure-their closed. I think I'll just go ahead and dive into this. If anyone has any advice on replacing this u-joint, I'd like to hear it.

Also, If anyone could eloborate on the 'power steering trick' I'd love to hear that as well.

Thanks again.

I just went ahead and did it myself. I had to back out the 4 bolts that hold the hub on little by little. $48 for the u-joint from Advance Auto Parts, and $13 for NAPA to press out the old and install the new. 4-6 hours worth of work, including driving into town to the nearest Napa. Fairly easy job, thank CF guys for the info.
