    If your talking about a front D60, it's easy. All you need is 2 axle u-joints, 2 35 spline stub axles and a set of 35 spline locking hubs. No different than when you have to change an axle joint, you just put it together with the new stubs and hubs. Nothing custom or tricky, it's all a direct swap.
