Default RE: Ever break one of these?

I usually use the fuel tank side, remove the two side engine mount plate screws, the end plate screw behind the shocks and the lower side skid plate screw. Normally you can flex the side plate enough to get past the locking nub on the shock tower. Just twist the opposing plate, using the control arm on the fuel tank side, far enough to slide the shaft in. If you are not comfortable doing the plate flexing, reomove the screw behind the shock tower and the side screw for the lower skid plate. Now you should be able to flex the plates just enough to remove the rear differential, shock tower, and suspension from the plates. Put the shaft inplace and the puzzle becomes getting everything aligned at once going back together. You need to get both nubs and the shaft in place at the same time...... Hope you find the information helpful.... Glen
