Rear differential on 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada

Need to pull rear axles to replace dust shields. Have differential cover off and don't see bolts to take out to push axles in to remove C clips . It may be limited slip version????

Limited slip or no - there should be a single bolt that holds the pinion shaft in place. With that bolt out you can remove the pinion shaft on non limited slip axles. With limited the pinion shaft will not need to come out all the way and it is bit more tricky to remove the c-clips on the axles.
