So I just got my brand new Dana 60 out of the box and ready to go. Except one thing, I am reusing my rear drums, so I realized I had to pull my shafts out of my 35 to get the drum assy off. That was easy enough, but how do I pull the shafts on the Dana 60?
i wouldnt trust the 35 brakes to even stop the axle shafts of a 60 from spinning lol. my 35s brakes suckeedddd

Sorry for not using correct terms but... I can't slide them over the outer flange (where the wheel studs are) unless that piece comes off? It seems that they have to go on before the axle shaft assy slides in?
So then just to recap... The shafts have to be out to install the drum mount plate? If so how do I pull the shafts? ( which will be done with tears streaming down my face, I really don't want to take apart a new assy)
Yes, you have to install the drum backing plate first, then the axle then the retainer plate. If its a 60 then it should be a semi float, once you remove the retainer plate, the axle should slide right out.
