Removing side gears and spider gears...

Is some sort of special technique used to remove the side gears and spider gears out of a D30 diff or do you just pry on them unitl they come out? Putting a locker in tomorrow and this is the only part of the intall that I am not familiar with.

Remove the pinion shaft, You will need a punch or something long and skinny to drive the rolling pin that secures the pinion shaft out. I used an old allen key, my punch wasn't long enough.this will allow you to rotate the gears. Then they will basically fall out after that.

I'm assuming you are installing a lunchbox locker. If so have you seen this write up...

Nothing to see here.
Move along.

Thanks for the link. I remeber the gear being a pita to take out of the D44 diff and thought I may have been going abouit it the wrong way, but after reading your post I know IO did it the right way. Wonder why it was so tough getting them out the D44.
