    Speed Guide: Axle replacement

    Remove fasteners tagged in red.
    Slide what is tagged in green.







    Then slide back.








    This entire process takes me less than 5 minutes.
    I performed this on the rear, but the front is very similar... and actually easier because you can turn the knuckle.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I figured it was needed since there was a thread recently that the poster had removed the entire knuckle to get the axle out.
    lol

    Yeah I agree. Thanks for the write up. These speed guides are great. Should be in a sticky for sure

    Used the one to get the diff out and worked like a charm.

    I have been having an issue with getting the axles bac into place with the outer wheel bearing not fitting onto the stub axle correctly and I have to hit and force the bearing on...any thoughts on why this is happening and or solutions?

    The hole where the pin holds the hub in place gets burrs from the slamming force it takes.
    I have a small fine flat file for dressing the stub end when that is needed.just a few strokes will usually be all that's needed

    Yup... Jamann is correct. Just slight burrs that keep the bearing from wanting to slip on.
