    Hey guys. I found two Dana44 diffs at the local boneyard today, but they are 6 bolt trucks, mine is an 8 bolt. I think the axles from the two interchange.

    What is the easiest way for me to pull the axles only at the boneyard? Any special sockets/tools I need to take the brakes off the diff? Sorry, I am new to this 4x4 stuff. Thanks.

    You will need snap ring pliers, a hub socket, a hammer, and some sockets. You have to pull off the locking hub, caliper, hub/rotor assembly, spindle (where you will need the hammer). Then they will just slide out. Bring a block of wood if you want to take the spindle as well so you don't mess it up with the hammer.
