spring pin stuck in d35 rear

I'm in the process of changing my ring and pinion from 3.55 to 4.10 and it seems the previous owner lost the bolt to the pinion shaft and drove a spring pin in there instead. I can't get the thing out. Any tips for me? I can't drill it. And tried to tap it out from the other side and just bent the stuff small enough to fit in there.


89yj- just getting started.
07.5 ram 2500 6.7 cummins. 13.6@98.6 1/4 on 35" nittos. Sold and sad about it
07 triumph speed triple 1050cc. Roulette Green monster
12 Sonata hybrid hippie car, MPG all day.
06 sierra 2500hd 6.6. On the way to running 11's.

Pinion shaft?? Do you mean the carrier?

Basically you have few options. Get a proper drive punch (not a cheapo) or a solid carbide bit (not carbide tipped and not cheapo) and drill it out. Since you're going to 4.10's the carrier is being replaced anyway.

It is the screw on the side of the carrier that holds the shaft in place prior to being able to remove the C clips.

I didn't know you have to replace the carrier just to change axle ratios. Never heard that.

Its called carrier break. What year model jeep?
Maybe time to upgrade to an axle that will handle your tires. Turdy fives are good for up to 32's with light wheeling.

Poor people problems. Lol. I got my answer from someone in the yj section. The rear brake is 3.55 and up. Front Dana 30 is 3.73 and up. So the front carrier will be the one needing the carrier. The spring pin is also a common hack job fix I guess. So back to the hammer when I get a little free time again. The jeep is an 89 yj 4.2 with an ax15. For others needing the info.

Glad you have a plan. I didn't realize the carrier break for you was 3.55. I have been told for me it's 3.73 (03 TJ with a D35 rear).

Not a hack job. Use of a roll pin instead of a threaded bolt to secure the cross pin is a stock arrangement.
