    First off I need to know how many quarts of gear oil it takes. Second off I wanna check the brakes since I'm just now putting the axle in. I took the axle shaft out but the drum will not budge. Is there a clip or something I'm missing that will allow it to come out? Do I need a special tool?

    <font color=blue>Take out the round clip, then the little rectangle thing (your screwed if you loose this) then back out the bearing nut. Theres a special socket for this but I used a flathead screwdriver and a hammer. Be VERY carefull when doing it this way. When you put it back together, tighten it enough to take out the wobble play then tighten it a little more until theres a slight bit of drag while spinning the hub, then just put the rectangle retainer back in and the clip.

    You need to pull the spindle nuts to get the drum off of a full floater - just like a front-end. As for oil capacity, if I remember right, they hold around 4 qts of oil.

    Special thanks to those lost from IAFF Locals 94 and 854 - You shall never be forgotten

    the drum was a pain in the ass so i got a BFH and beat the bajessus out of is (getting disk brakes anyway), auto zone has the socket to get it off, i just rent it the part # at auto zone is #AZ840. it will say dana 70 socket but its the same. when taking off teh nut there is (should be) a snap ring w/ a little block holding the nut on---don't lose these, had a hard time finding a good one for a friend.
