[email]DANG@!![/email] I guess I did it the hard way the first time then. I will do it that way next day off I get. If it's that "easy" I'll prob just put in the spare 4.10 i have laying around. Man that made my day, I don't think those drum casings will ever budge.


They can be difficult, but not impossible. I assume you remembered to release the parking brake before your attempt <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />
It could take some banging with a BFH. There should be 2 threaded holes in the drum that take metric bolts (don't recall what size) that can be used to slowly back out a stubborn drum.
Dealing with the extra weight of a wheel/tire would be a real hassle, especially putting it back in.

Good luck.

PS, I was born in (North) Vancouver many years ago. Parents moved south when I was 2. Its one of the worlds great cities.

Pulling the rear 3rd really is quite easy, I've had mine out in as little as 30 mins before... but I've done it several times, too.
Yep, you can leave the drums on. Ratcheting box-end wrenches are nice for getting to those 4 bolts on the back of the drums.

IMO there are 2 primary difficulties w/ this chore...
1 - unless your rear brake lines have been replaces before and have an unusual amount of slack in them, they will have to be disconnected so you can pull the axles out enough to clear the carrier... which means fluid everywhere.
*But there is a trick*
on the axle on the P-side, there is a T in the hard lines. If you disconnect the lines here, where they come from each axle into the T, you can quickly thread an M10 1.0 bolt in place where the line fitting was in the junction - this prevents all your fluid from leaking out. You'll have a little bit o' brake line still attached to the wheel hub, but it doesn't really matter when you slide it out.

2 - After you take out the 14 bazillion nuts holding the 3rd on, it will likely still be very stuck in place. There's a lot of hydrostatic pressure from the gear oil keeping it stuck to tke gasket and flange. It may take a few good whacks w/ a rubber BFG to break the seal. This can be a PITA while laying under there... and that sucker is deceptively heavy for it's size!! so be ready when it comes off.


With 200+ Billion electrical parts, the world most complicated machine is inside your own skull.

Question Reality.

Body Damage is Cool
Well I got down to business today. Pulled the axle stems without removing the drums (sooo much easier) pulled the diff, had the removal done in an hour. Looked inside and saw the carnage. The bottem two or three teeth on the pinion crunched off, and sporadic gears on the ring crunched off too. I have pics that I'll try and post tomm. So I guess all I need is a new ring and pinion set and someone to set it up and ill be good to go again. Not horrible, just so weird that it would go all of a sudden while driving on pavement after all these years of hard driving, busting it hard offroad....I guess when it's time to go it's time to go.
