I can't figure out how to get the damn thing off so I can replace the seal on the box. I took the bolts off the damper, unbolted the holding bolt (for lack of better term) for the splined part attached to the box, and for the spline part attached on the upper end (that goes to the steerng wheel). What is the trick to this thing? Isn't the shaft suppose to slide into itself to get shorter, so I can pull one side off the splines? It woun't slide though. The only other thing I can think of is to pull the box off the frame and slide the box down and forward off the shaft. Someone please help because I don't want to go through that much work. There must be an easier way.
