Removing tru-lok Differential
Last weekend, we broke the knuckle on the front passenger side and as a result, the axle bent and now we cant seam to get it out. The driver side came out with a simple slide hammer but the passenger side wont move. Most differentials have a screw and pin to remove in the differential housing but since it has the Tru-Lok, I cant get to the pin. Has anyone had this problem, or know how to get the axle out?
Front axle shafts are not retained by c-clips, so there is no need to remove a screw or pin for access. Since you said the tube is bent I would assume the axle shaft is in a bind and maybe twisting the splines or something to keep it stuck in there. You said the knuckle broke, what are you calling the "knuckle", that's a rare part to break before other things give way first. Make sure the u-joint ears/yoke on the axle shaft did not spread out causing the shaft to bind when passing through the center hole in steering knuckle
