I have a full floating axle. As far as i know i need to reamove the tires then i have to take off the 8 bolts around so i can pull out the axle. what i dont know is if ill have to get into the differential to remove any types of pins or locks.

Also just to add, had one the other day that the customer was told the seal was leaking, turns out the axle flang gasket is what his problem was! I just used silicone and resealed it. Now this may not be your trouble but it was just a thought.
