well if anyone has the same troubles of removing the wheel hub assembly, bashing away at it for hours with a hammer is a waste of time (ask me how I know...) Just do this, and it will come right apart

Bearings are attached to the carrier via press. They don't need to be reshimmed as the shims are behind the bearings themselves. As long as you do things carefully and follow my instructions for this type of diff you won't need to gear mark or preload anything.

YJ89jeepTX, if you remove the passenger side axle, a collar which connects passenger side axle and center axle will be left inside of axle tube. You have to put it back to the axle when you install the axle back. So, you have to remove the shift motor to do this. The posilok should be very simple for you if you can install the aussie. You may do search how that shift motor works in this forum. good luck.

Been a long time since I've done this install but pretty sure it needs to be pulled in order to slide the inner shaft over out of the way, then back into place. The carrier won't come out with the inner shaft still in it, and the inner can't (if I remember right) slide over far enough to leave the carrier as the ring\shift motor would block it's movement. Someone may correct me on this, I did this install years ago. It's not a big deal to remove, if you have the "cable" style shift it's the exact same as the stock one, but a cable instead of fragile vacuum lines.

Just wanted to say thanks for this excellent write up! I installed my Aussie locker on Wednesday and after having read your write up it made the job fast and easy.

Any advice on using Loctite on the ring gear bolts? If yes, blue or red? Hopefully I won't be taking the ring off again.

I realize in the write-up it mentions the use of red loctite, but when I removed the ring gear bolts, there was no evidence that loctite was used on those bolts.

Two quick questions..

Do you guys use axle grease on the new locker?

Can I reuse the rolling pin or do I need to get a new one?
