if it's an automatic you'll need to keep the front half of the driveshaft in place otherwise transmission fluid will dump out all over the ground. the splined shaft of the driveshaft (the center bearing support, front half of the drive shaft) also seals the rear output seal. the rear half of the driveshaft can be removed, unbolted. manual trans driveshafts can be unbolted. also for an automatic you'll have to splice into the duty solenoid C or put in the FWD fuse to run in FWD mode. in the manual trans you'll have to lock the center diff. otherwise the rear output shaft will spin and do nothing and your front wheels will not do anything.
very small weight savings, doubt you could shave more than 75 pounds, not enough to make a noticeable difference. if you did a ton of city driving with heavy foot and brake action then maybe, but for highway miles it won't mean a thing. i load a few hundred pounds in my soobs and for highway miles it does nothing because once you're up to speed i'm guessing the amount of gas to sustain that highway speed is nearly identical regardless of weight. alot of accelerating would likely be hurt more by weight i'm guessing.

My fault, it does mount to the flange and the flange holds the rear wheels on (brainfart).

To make it more clear. This car will never run again. I need only the tires on there. I have the whole rear crossmember dropped. I have the Differential and the axles lying on the ground. About two days after my duaghter was born the U-Joint on this car broke and the driveline fell on the ground and proceeded to snap. The transmission case is cracked severely and is FUBAR. Alll I need is the back wheel which it seems that I should be able to disconnect those axles. Then I can lift it in there and bolt it up to move the car to the Junk Yard. aka my Yard. So I know have the back plate of the diff removed. Do I have to cut out those axles?
Well since the car is going to be planter, and doesnt even have to move that far, there are either two spring pins, then the axles pry out, or if you dont see the two spring pins, they just pry out anyway. If there are spring pins , just drive them out with a drift, and it should all come apart.
I hope no one was hurt ..
Congrats on the duaghter.
