we'll it's not a 12bolt to start with

After removing the brake caliper,rotor and 4 nuts that hold on the axle retainer/backing plate just use a big slide hammer and they will come out nothing special.
Water has probably gotten into the bolt holes and seized up just beat the hell out of it with a slide hammer......

Thanks Bansil I know you have been patient with me over on the planet. I was able to get the one side out no problem the other side took hours. we had to fab out steel plate to fit over studs,welded to a rod with a steel p[lat at the other end. I used a railroad chunk (30 lbs) and bashed it over and over,put a few blow torches on there and bashed it for about an hour and it finally came out....thanks a lot Bansil. question about the shims. I am taking out my LSD carrier and replacing it with an open carrier so I can use my Aussie. is there a backlash tool so the shims are perfect? so there is no noise when driving. My friend said I would need to have it perfect and he doesn't know where to buy one?

Ok I'll be nice..............search


The shims you need are the factory sidegear shims,rodeored bought them as well as a few other folks,If you look behind the sidegears of your open carrier you'll see 1 shim on each side,these will be reused in the open carrier w/aussie locker you will need probably 4 more per side,you'll have to measure the spacing between you aussie locker like the directions say,then get a calculator and do the math.

Seriously search here on pirate for rodeoreds D44 post lot's of info in it.

Good luck and PM me on the planet if you need more help

no, they don't have c-clips. You just have to commit with a prybar and know that you're going to end up on your ass with a shaft in your lap.

I've used a hi-lift off of the frame before as well. works better if you leave the track bar connected.
