These components include the propeller shafts, drive axles, pinion flanges, output shafts, etc. All components must be reassembled in the exact relationship to each other as they were when removed. In addition, published specifications and torque values, as well as any measurements made prior to disassembly, must be followed.

  1. Bolts and retainers from front axle.
  2. Bolts and retainers from transfer case. IMPORTANT: Do not pound on to disconnect.
