The Lemon Strikes again...Front end prob


I got so burned on this truck. Now the front end is making a bird chirping sound out of the front end. I'm guessing either wheelbearing or axle ujoint. Anybody know how to get the spindles off this thing ? I have never done a Dodge. It has the Dana 60 front end

Oh. . K. . .

Can you get a hold of the front drive shaft and wiggle it around ? up down left right ? . .

On the axle knuckles can you get any play from them ? left right up down ? . . .

On both can you grab before and after the joint and get any play ? . . .

Then how about the Hubs ? those love to fail . . . any play there can you move the wheel hub around in out up down left right ect ?

Edit:
sorry for all the questions just trying to narrow it down to what and where . . .
