Rear GL axle stuck
Posted 07 August 2009 - 12:02 PM
I have been reworking a 1982 GL E81 powered wagon. I need new axles all the way around and the rear drivers side is stuck at the splines on the wheel end.
I removed my pins and the diff side was quick with no issues. The splines on the wheel end have a firm grip. I used a big brass drift and got no movement. I have been soaking it with PB blaster. I had to put it back together and drive it (rattle rattle:rolleyes:) I then realized I need new suspension bushings and some chassis black put in the right places. I have plans to remove the suspension arm, take apart the axle and press it out with my 20 ton press.
I am hoping this can be done. I know I need new wheel bearings after my hammer and drift work. That's hard on them.
I bought napa cv axles and now regret it after reading up here some. I will throw those in and buy some quality front's when I get to that end.
In the mean time is there a way to get the two apart without me uncontrollably rebuilding the entire assembly in a foreign language. I really need too in the long run?
Can I throw this in?
I would like to find a suspension bushing source. My regular shop only does SAE truck stuff. My rear diff is missing the whole upper half.
I just hit 300K and I am really starting to like this car.
