    I need to remove the pass side axle to check the brakes
    can I pull just that side out?
    I thought when I installed the locker the manual said to reinstall a bolt with a wing nut but I maybe crazy I lost all the info on the locker when I moved. I hope this makes sense.

    If it is a 14FF you can just pull it out.

    Be ready for gear oil to come out with the axle too.

    Yeah, jack that one side way up - it see show flexy you are and prevents the oil from coming out.

    Removew the 8 inner bolts and remove the axle. That's it.
