    Default Differential Removal & Alignment

    I am going to remove the differential to give me more access to clean things up and
    before I unbolt the axles and driveline, do I need to mark these so when I bolt them all back up they go on the same position they came off or is it just the driveline that is necessary.

    I assume the driveline will also slide out of the transmission when I do this. Does this also have to be marked so it goes in the trans at the exact same location?

    Thanks.

    This is becoming quite the "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" story. "If You Give A Guy A Z ......" lol

    Mark both ends. If you have an auto your d shaft can be withdrawn from the trans, if it is a std. you can just leave the "U" joint hooked up and lower the rear of the shaft. ( After disconnecting the "U" joint of course. )

    Don't know what year you have, but...

    Yes, mark all three shafts at both ends if possible. The two half-shafts (aka drive shafts) and the drive shaft (aka propeller shaft).
