Re: rocky road high steer. changing pass side axle?
Just to remove the axle? you shouldnt have to touch anything of the steering stuff!! just everything down to the backing plate, once you can see the birfield joint you should be able to just pull it out. Somtimes it will give you hell but if you put that stupid clip back on the end of the axle it will give you some grip and then wiggle up down left right and in a circle motion while pulling out on the axle, once everything lines up it will just pop out! dont mess with the steering junk unless you have too.
I even leave that clip out of the hub so whenever I have to take my axles out I dont have to take my hub apart to do it. I just use the 12 with a 6" extension to get to the back bolts and just pull the whole hub off! much easier and time saving. Its just there to keep your hub from falling off if the bolts come out or break. I dont think Yotas even have them(the clips on the end of the axle shaft). Good luck!
