When I had the engine out today I noticed the my output drives

are a little distorted and at some stage will need replacing. Whats the easiest way to get these out, I'm guessing that the whole diff needs to be removed if this is the case can someone post the best way to go about this.

this is a pic of mine

wow are those cups ever worn. It will drive like new with new cups. I would strongly suggest you check the outters also, they are probaly worn.

yep its really easy, get the dogbones out and then slide them carefully out of the diff and slip the new ones back in - no need to pull the diff apart.

Just FYI, Never let the dif cups get that bad (worn) that is how the dif cage and gears will get mashed up. The additional snap on the gears and the plastic dif cage will eventually take its toll. The good thing is they are DTX diff cups and are sold in a pair, if they where FG's there sold separate and cost double.:( Remove the C clip and metal rod from the arm above and pull out the shaft and remove and insert the new cup.:)

It can't be that simple, there I was thinking the whole back end needed to come off.

excellent thanks
