Chrysler are experiencing major issues for their 2012-2018 Ram 1500 front differential right side axle splines being stripped (same issue they had with the early models) and they do not offer a replacement shaft, you must replace the complete differential and the demand is so high that some units are currently on 3-4 months back order. We have been working the past year on getting a fix and have succeeded. In the near future Transtar will be offering a repair kit to rectify this problem, they are currently in production. The main issue Chrysler has had since 2001 with these axles splines stripping is because
they are exposed to the elements.The kit will consist of the right side shaft (with needle bearing installed) and a boot and clamps to prevent foreign debris
from destroying the splines, allowing you to repair the unit instead of replacing it. This repair will save the customer from having repeat to replace the unit in the near future as this problem will only continue. As an added bonus the boot kit is available separately and also corrects the same issue on the early models.Part numbers are listed below and attach file shows what the differential consist of.
Axle shaft replacement kit # 722N695BK (shaft, needle bearing, boot and clamps)
Boot kit only # 722N695BT
