Then we removed the bearing caps. Be sure to keep them seperate and oriented top and bottom for reinstall. I dont have a good picture of the carrier retention nuts - that is what the punch marks are for. Rotate the nuts one full turn each then try to remove the carrier. If it won't come out rotate them another full turn. Do this until they come out making sure to count the turns. (I used my center punch in the holes to rotate the nuts.)
Then set the carrier on
your table and remove the ring gear. I marked
the ring gear and carrier so that they would go together the same. Once
the ring gear is off, the carrier will come apart like this:
This is a picture with the spiders removed
Here are the welded spiders ready to install. Be sure to really lube them up.
Then put the ring gear back on and reinstall, following these directions in reverse order to reassmeble.
Put the carrier back in this hole.
And so on...=)
Then all that is left is to try it out.
Here this is my truck after trying to keep up with Jeff all afternoon.
