    Front or rear axle. Either way almost the same.

    Front,
    Remove the axle shafts
    Remove the bolt that holds the pin in place
    Remove the pin that holds the spiders in
    remove the spiders

    Rear.
    Remove the bolt that holds the pin in place
    Remove the pin that holds the spiders in
    slide the axle shafts in
    Remove the C clips
    slide the axle shafts out
    remove the spiders

    Rear.
    Remove the bolt that holds the pin in place: are you talking about the bolt on the front of the rear axle that goes on the pinion shaft?

    NO.
    Take teh diff cover off and rotate the carrier until you see a small bolt head. I think is is 5/16. It goes from the pass side towards the drivers side. Remove that and the pinion pin will slide right out

    Sounds like this is your first trip inside a diferential. If so, pick up a manual. As they saying goes, a picture is worth a 1000 words.

    That's all I've got to add since that old sea dog answred you already.
