    ok - so i'm trying to change out my ubolt so i can run the 14bff i have under my rig. after you pull the c-clips, what do you do?

    edit - i'm an idiot and meant to say ujoints. i need to swap in the conversion joint and can't figure out how to remove the old one.

    I dont know about anyone else but you lost me when you ask about C-clips and changing to 14 blt. If you are swapping axles there is no need to remove the c-clips, just unbolt the 4 ubolts disconnect brakes and e-brake and disconnnet d-shaft. Put new axle under install new ubolts, connect brake line and ebrake, bleed brakes, and install conversion ujoint and reconnect dshaft.

    What are you really asking, put it simple I have had a quite a few New Castles:D.

    If it is the stock shaft the caps are held into the yoke on the shaft with injected plastic rather than a snap ring or clip. You have to melt that out and then press the caps out with a socket larger than the cap on one side and one smaller than the cap on the other.
