It seems like the more I read this thread, the more I don't want to take out my differential to do this. When I get around to doing mine, do I have to take the differential out? Or can I just get the truck up high enough to work on it without removing it?
No way around dropping that diff. The cover is attached to the rear crossmember and the axles have to get pulled to remove the spider gears. That goes for any kind of work you need to do inside this diff.
I found that a 12 pack makes these sorts of things more fun lol.
