Which axle? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Im assuming you are referring to the front axle? If so, there is a retaining clip that you need to remove to get it out.

Re: right axel how to get it out

That's right, it is inside the diff. If you have never put a locker in or messed with the front diff, it will have a C-clip retainer for the passenger side front axle shaft. Unfortunately, the only removal option is to unbolt the diff/TTB. If you do this, I stongly recommend you NOT reinstall the c-clip and look to old posts concerning the spring in the slipshaft. I had a nice writeup, and then Superford accidently wiped that out.

I am still awaiting there apology Superford stickers. [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]

I did the spring in both my 89 and my 87 that I am working on now...much easier.

Re: right axel how to get it out

(Read thinking with Mr. Miagis voice from the Karate Kid) Grasshoppah, Youuu must pull the pumpkin to access said clip. Removeth thoust bolts from da front of da TTB. Den you must removeth the pumpkin with care. Make sureth to haveth one hand uponeth said pumpkin when removething da last bolt or said pumpkin can splateth on hard garageth floor damaging da ringeth gear or verry surprised falanges. Der is a chance that it will not fall out and be stuck wit da silicon dat it was installeth with. Gently pull down on the pinion and you shouldeth be rewardeth with a nice bath of gear oil. You then need to get rags and wax on and off da garageth floor. Oh I forget! Place oil pan unda da pumkin first! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] If you like Big Norm. You still get oil all ova' da place! haha I make joke! Anyways. You will now haveth da prise pumkin in your oily hands and now be able to access and remove the bothersome clip and remove bothersome slip yoke! Instead of clip in future use valve spring in slip yoke. this spring must be 1 1/4" long or you may receive bad bam bam vibes in you future! Big Norm got his from trash can at local auto machine shop. This concludes lesson Grasshoppa! Bonzaiiiii! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: right axel how to get it out

I found a easy way to get the axle out ,you don't have to take the front apart .the right side the axle is in 2 sections with a rubber boot over were they connect,take the little clamps off slide the rubber boot to the drivers side of shaft ,once you get the boot slid away the axle comes right out,no hassels [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
