    If you have a gear puller available they work great too. My assembly was rusted solid so the BFH method wasn't even enough.

    Remove the 3 bolts holding the arm. There will be 3 cone-shaped washers that need to be removed. I had luck getting them off on my 10bolt, but they wouldn't buge on the D44. I smacked it with a BFH a couple of times until the cones stuck out enough that I was able to unloosen them. Do a search, I remember there being several threads with tricks on how to remove these.

    Good luck :grin:

    I just dealt with that pain a week ago when I put a 4"lift on my '91 3/4 Sub.
    PB and a sledge. Just don't smack the fender trim to pieces when wailin on it. Hope you're replacing the arm...

    The stuff works really well...Probably the only thing that does with a "As seen on TV" on the label. Any parts store should carry it. Use liberally and go to town with the BFH. When you see the cone washers start to pop up, smile, you're almost there....
