Rear Diff Axle stub removal-Socket? Q, Zap, Corky?
Posted 23 September 2003 - 09:19 AM
Looks like 1st order of business is to get the stubs off- I have an external torx e-12 but shes too fat to squeeze inside the stub- What socket/where'd ya get it to unscrew these boogers? Looks like a 9mm 1/4 drive deep might work (if my garage was clean enough to find one arrrrgggg) 5/32 just doesn't grip..

FYI Sears is a no go as suggested by some (they do suprise me once in a while what they do have) also,
the "E" probably stands for external (female sockets) regular male star bits seem to be refered to as "T"-number/size
Ken if you see Zap and can spare yours for the job it would be great

EJ- the side seal carriers Andy included with this have 1 shim on 1 side, 2 on the other. Looks like each diff could be different.
Thanks again for the socket use Zap.

I'm around this afternoon if you wanna call me after work to help with completion.
EJ. I really can't recall how many on each side. As I was taking it apart and reassembling it, I kept all the left stuff together and all the right side stuff together so I wouldn't space any parts. My memory is too bad to try to keep track of all those similar looking parts.

I'm wondering if one year is easier than another year to swap.

Mr Qman mentions this in the USRM article. BTW, nice feature!
Zap, I'm thinking I owe you a fresh drill bit (from your helicoil pack)... It was just the right size at the moment of need and Mr Svengouli had just a few too many to cruise out for one

" Make sure that you use the side caps that match the ring gear.
Very important as this will maintain your gear mesh.
If it isn't the right set you run the risk of getting noise and mismatch"
Sounds like you only need the #/shim placement of your 3.9 EJ, don't need to remember the set up for the 3.7
Zap, Im about to grind swing by if'n your sttin around
