    How in the world do you pull the carrier out of a 14bolt? I've done two now and each time I have to destroy the races and bearings? Whats the secret?

    Twist the adjusters into the housing as far as they will go.

    What Matt said. He helped me take mine out awhile back. I adjusted the collars out into the axle tubes and the carrier didn't come out. I gave it a little tug and the ring gear and carrier almost fell on my face.

    Thanks, I'm an idiot. I just spent 3 hours on a cold wet night trying to remove that carrier. Like I said this was my second one. Maybe I should just use the adjusters from now on. On a different note I did finish the disk brake swap tonight.

    I think most of us have been there. I know I did it when I pulled apart my first 14 bolt.

    Key word first. This was my second. I was standing out in the shop cursing and bleeding, trying to pry that carrier out. When I first started I told the guys helping that I should just come in and look on CK5. Instead I beat and banged untill I destroyed the races and bearings. Man I feel stupid.
