Re: How do I remove the front axle shafts on a YJ? Need HELP!
Here is some advice from one who has been down the same road you are currently on: go get some antiseize compound, aluminum base or copper base, it doesn't matter so much as USE IT! EVERYWHERE! There are a few places not to like head bolts, rod bolts, etc., etc. but evrything else on our Jeeps can benefit from the stuff. (I know, I know, it gets all over everything while you are putting things back together!) It stops corrosion and/or galling at the interference surfaces and when you take it apart later it will come apart. The best part of this is when you have to take it apart on the trail. It becomes a wrenching and fixing exercise instead of a frustration-filled ordeal fringed with colorful expressions. And busted knuckles. I cannot say this too much: USE IT EVERYWHERE! It works.
