    silver02ta, Do you mean the drive shaft to the rear diff. Only four bolts on each end. I have had mine out once, easy. Danny

    silver02ta, You must unbolt the other end at the diff. the drive shaft should drop down. Danny

    You may be able to just unbolt the carrier bearing mount, and that may be enough. But it would be better to remove the shaft completely. I don't think you want to bend that bearing too much. I removed it completely. Torque specs are in my thread.

    Get a bigger pry bar. If I remember correctly, there are metal spacer tubes in the rubber donuts that the bolts go thru. When torqued down they are pretty much press fit into the trans prop. Take some pics and post them and I can tell you if I see anything you missed.
