Default Dana 35 Axle Shaft

So I have a bent axle shaft on my Jeep. I have a dana35 rear and I was woundering what is involved in changing an axle shaft on this axle? I know the front is pretty straight forward, how about the rear?

The rear is easier...

Assuming you have a C-clip axle follow these steps

Remove the differential cover, take off the wheel and drum, bump the axle shaft inward, remove the c-clip, pull axle shaft out.

Pull cross shaft before bumping shaft and removing c-clip.



None of this applies if your axle is not a c-clip axle.

Bearings are in the housing, not pressed on the shafts.
