O/T HELP QUICK! rear diff

I posted this on the chevy bb and thought I'd try it here too since you all have lotso know-how! I'm replacing the rear axle seals in my 95 c1500 10 bolt rear end. How do you remove the cross shaft going thru the spider gears? I'v already taken out the set screw, but I can't get the shaft to move more than 1/8" either way. HOW?? In the process as I type so please help quick!!!
Thanks

Greg

Re: O/T HELP QUICK! rear diff

I haven't done seals on a Chevy axle, but have done Danas, Fords and Dodges. Why do you need to take out the cross shaft? If the 10-bolt is a c-clip design, there should be enough end play so you're able to push the shaft in enough to slide the c-clip out or grab it with a needle nose pliers.

Those C-clips will not come out with that cross shaft in there, the cross shaft has to come out first!

Re: O/T HELP QUICK! rear diff

Sometimes when the carrier and pin get some wear on them they become hard to come out. You may have to give it a few hits with the hammer. Just make sure you dont hit the pin to far in so that it will hit the pinion. If the pin wants to come out hard all the way just tap it out enough to push the axles in. If the pin has a lot of wear on it replace it. When the pin breaks it gets ugly. Good luck

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: O/T HELP QUICK! rear diff

the cross shaft might be hitting the ring gear if so you might have a problem

Re: O/T HELP QUICK! rear diff

Thanks for the tips guys. What the problem ended up being was the set bolt I took out broke off down inside the carrier and I couldn't see it right off. Luckily the rest of it came out with no problem. Now I just need to go to the dealer and get a new bolt (read big $$$$$ [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img])
Thanks everybody!

Re: O/T HELP QUICK! rear diff

I have had the same problem with those bolts. Instead of giving the dealer $10 for a silly bolt, I have a taken a grade 8 bolt the same length as the retainer bolt and turned it in a lathe. If you have a friend with a small lathe, you could easily make the bolt. Or, you could use a grinder to make the bolt, not as pretty as the lathe, but with a little patience a bolt can be ground adequately for the job.
