    Took my old rear end out today, all except for the e-brake cables. Any tips on gettign these things off? Is there anywhere I can unbolt the lines other than the drums? I really don't want to take apart my brakes, in case for some reason I end up getting this rear end rebuilt...thanks

    No dice unless you cut them off with a bolt cutter. just zip tie them down and across the pumpkin, kinda out of the way for now.

    Mine met the wire cutters when I pulled my 10 bolt. It worked!

    That solves the problem for now, but what do I do when I put the new rear end on?

    I got the 2 new rear ones from Napa the other day for $70. Kind of steep I know. I'm gona try and "ghetto rig" something on my 14 bolt w/ them. Sorry I couldn't be much help.
