Dana 35 C-clip Axle removal


I need a little information if you would, please?

I am about to take two ('90 and '95) Dana 35 C-clip axles apart. Does anyone know of a writeup, tech page, or would you post the details for doing so? Tools/sizes if possible.

I am going to take the spiders out of one of them. I am then going to take a broken E-Z locker (I think it's broken anyway) out of the other and replace it with the spiders from the first one.

I want to do this on this upcoming weekend.

A quick overview for ya....

0.) put vehicle on jackstands, remove wheels, drums, take off cover, drain, blah, blah, blah.

1.) remove the cross pin retaining bolt (this is a small wrench, like 5/32s or something), slide out the cross pin.
2.) now the axle shafts will push in slightly, enabling you to remove the c-clips.
3.) rotate the carrier around and the top spiders will slide out then enabling you to remove the side spiders.

Thats all there is too it, sounds simply eh?

You shouldn't need much more than a simple set of sockets/wrenchs. The of course gear oil and RTV to seal it back up.
