    You will need to pull the diff. cover and drain the fluid. Then you will need to pull the cross shaft that holds the spider gears in place. Once that is out you should be able to push the axle in and get the c-clip off if it doesnt fall off. You will need to have the brake drum off to push the axle shaft in but I'm sure you'll probably already have it off anyway. Once the c-clip is off the axle should pull out. I am assuming you have an open diff, I have no idea how to do it on a locker or LSD.

    I havent started yet, The reason i need them out is to replace the spider gears I broke. I was lucky that nothing else in there was damaged. So once i take the c clips off the axle will slide out? or at least enough to get the carrier thing out to stick the new spiders in?

    Loosen all four U-bolts, take drive shaft off, pull off brake lines, remove shocks, take off wheels to make lighter. Then, wait until your local pull-a-part has the $10 axle sale and get yourself a 14B FF. Never have to worry about it again.
