I need to remove my rear axle assembly. 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. My Chrysler manual states "remove the brake lines at the rear axle junction block" See Section 5 Brakes for more info. Its all crimp fittings on the hose....
There is no info in section 5 regarding this junction block. Even if I remove the brake lines at the block, the brake line to it will remain. Thus, I cannot drop the axle while it would still be attached by the hose to the junction block.
Do I grind the weld off on the rear of the block to separate it from the axle tube? This is holding me up big time. I don't want to break the steel L fitting off of the rear axle junction block once the axle is out from under the Jeep.
What do the shops do when they replace an entire axle on a Wrangler in regard to this "rear axle junction block"?
