Im trying to remove the right half shaft but the inner joint is stuck i cant pry it out, it is the snap ring type im sure, other mechanics said they were real tough and they had to disassemble the inner joint on the new part and put the bearings in the old cup that is stuck,i cant do this because the new part is an update and is alittle different,does anyone have knowledge of these?

After a drive of around 55 to 70 miles an hour for an extended period of 20 minutes or more. I put my car in reverse and there is a sound like rubber on metal, and I can feel the sound at the same time coming from rear of car. I replaced all pads, and rotors, and I know I have a leak at my differential pinion seal , but when I changed my diff cover I did not see any metal shavings in the fluid, the fluid did look frothy though. My car also shakes violently when driving between 60-65. I found that all my tires were severely under aired. Haven't driven far since adding air to tires. Pinion seal comes in next week some time. Any ideas?

I called a dealer to quote a transmission flush and he told me this car doesnt need a flush. He explained that it uses a special fluid to replace and that's it. Does this make sence? He said this was per the manuel. I will look myself, but was looking for other peoples thoughts and experiences with this.
