Thank you. The only problem I have is how to remove the allen screws from back of the axle to transfer case. I did try 6mm and 1/4 long drivers and they goes in very shallow and start slipping in screw. Thanks for any help.
They are long but the problem is you have to use lots off force and if you do that, they still not turning. Is very easy to damage those screws and one they are damaged it will be very hard to unscrew them. So, anything else you can think about it. I was thinking to drill the heads out. What is your idea?
Thanks BrooklinBay. I will try use extractor socket tomorrow. I think this is the only way to get them out. Everything else did go straight forward just those 4 allen screws. They just not deep enough to get a good grip.
I went through this once, I picked up the correct socket system, then was able to use my long extension and an impact, now I can do one in about 20 minutes, once you figure the quirks out, it is a very simple job.
