Re: Replacement CV axle
For popping the axle out of the dif...
Make yourself a cable noose and use a 2 pound dead blow on one end in an eyelet and noose the other end around the inner axle housing,(where the inner seal is) and the axle pops right out
The cable noose needs to be about 30 inches, I think . It just needs to be long enough to be able to use it like a slide hammer outside the fenderwell. I I keep it in my trial tool bag. It takes up no room and saves a bunch of B.S under the truck, in the dirt.
I made one and popped axles out in seconds
It may take a minute or two, off your 45 minute time.
Do you happen to have a picture of this set-up?
