Mine came out with a slide hammer, although I do recall one side giving one hell of a fight.

My friend runs an ford 8.8 in his toyota with the v6 supercharged on 35's and he drives it hard, and its held up real good.
Well, this check is the super 88 and my next one will be the chromoly D30 shafts with the disconnect eliminator.

I dunno, I guess I'm more of the if it ain't broke don't fix it type guy. I'd sit at my desk thinking if I never upgraded that, would it have broken?

NOT true.
My kit was a "new" kit. At least this is what both Northridge and Superior said when I called them and said "WTF". It was bought from Northridge and shipped from Superior(dropped shipped).
I got it several months ago. With the bearings NOT pressed on.

Just expect to do this yourself.

Also my c-clip eliminators are covered in rust.
