I would also like to plead for your trade secrets on the quickest and most efficient way to change an axle assembly. If you do not wish to divulge such detals; I completly understand

Is there a difference in size between 2WD and 4WD ? I have all 2WD stuff on right now. Will be putting in the 4WD rear end tomarrow night so then I'll have 2WD / 4WD untill I get the 5speed DR in.
Do the 2WD inner CVs hook upto the 4WD DR transmission? Or will I be needing to swap in 2 more 4WD front axle assemblies?

To reiterate one questions. What's the recommended punch size? Are there any other tools needed?
All suggestions are welcome.

Also - check this thread for axle removal / installation:
And try out the search feature next time as you may have run across this on your own, and saved yourself some time.

Drawing the axle into the hub has been a pita for me before. Have some plastic ABS or PVC pipe handy to cut into spacers to place behind the axle washer and nut if needed. I have had the whole knuckle off before w/ the axle just started... and WWF'd the face of the knuckle on the garage floor w/ axle in hands to get it seated good.. prolly lucky I didn't break anything though

GeneralDisorder: Search is great; and your right I should have used it for the "how too" question but there wasnt a big consensus on what size the nut was and no mention of the punch size.
Off to the parts store again!
