D35 with Lock Rite lunchbox question

Okay, I searched everywhere on here and nothing I found worked.


I'm sure this has been covered and covered but I can't get the C clips off the old rear shafts to replace them. The locker is completely in the way and there is not enough room to get them out with a magnet like everyone suggests. What do I have to do to get the old shafts out?

Please don't flame, I miss driving my Jeep

Get another person to push the axle in. Use a pry-bar to shift the locker over enough to get the c-clip out with a magnet or a clip.

Now on the other hand, it's possible that you twisted the shaft just enough that you can't get the axle to slide in any further. You
ll have to grind the axle off at the c-clip- and yes, it does suck. Don't ask how I know this.

I just did this by myself with an Aussie locker, remove the pin, and you push the axle in, I don't believe it was as far in as it would go, but then you push the locker open on that side, you may have to push the axle in and out to get it lined up just right, I pointed the slot down and used a small screw driver and magnet to persuade the clip to fall out. you do have to get the little c clip cup out of the way, i just pushed in inwards. Tapping on the carrier with a small ball peen hammer (lightly-multiple times) helped line the c clip so it pointed down. Should be a piece of cake unless you have other issues going on

Might be a dumb question....

What year is the vehicle? (Are you sure it's a c-clip axle?)
