Wrenchaton (help me pull my diff and rear Please):)

Saturday April 28??
My house
The plan is pull front diff and rear 3rd Thursday night so I can take them to On&Off Road Friday morning then pick them up Sat. morning/afternoon and get them back in truck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.I have never done this so not sure exactly what I’m doing. If you got any projects you need to work on we can take care of them Sat. too. I only have basic hand tools and no heat in garage but it will keep us dry.

Do yourself a favor and start PB Blastering the 4studs on the brake backing plates (both sides on the rear), the brake line fittings going into them, and the driveshaft bolts at the diffs a couple days before this
yep got floor jack and two sets of jack stands

gonna stop at habor freight one day and get big pry bar to pop cv out of diff and pick up some pb blaster;)

you shouldn't need anything to big, usually I use one that has a screwdriver type handle and is about 18" long

Is one of your sets of jackstands tall enough to reach the frame? Or should I bring my big set?

the rear you can support by the axle tubes, but we need to be able to reach the frame in the front

Terry what time do you think you will be there Thursday? I have some taller stands but I think only yours will get joe's truck off the ground at the frame. I get off work at 5 but I might work threw lunch and get off at 4. If I get off at 4 I should be there by five. Joe pm me your address again please. Also don't worry me doing to much work at my house I have been lazy and was going to do it this weekend.

Oh and to save you a drive Joe On & Off road is just down the street from me. If you want I can take the gears to Bob for you. I won't be able to make it Saturday probably because I will be on call for work. Now if Joe has a wireless router or a hot spot near by that I can log into my work gear with that would help.

Regrettably my work hasn't gotten the cell phone net cards for the laptops yet. I have to be near a normal house wireless setup like wireless a b or g. I will see what happens though we are suppose to get a card for testing but probably not by then. :(
