DIY - Axle Removal

AFter you have removed the shock....
https://www.acura-legend.com/vbulleti...ad.php?t=69990

DIY - AXLE Removal

AFter you have removed the shock assembly (as shown above) it's time to remove the AXLE



Step 1.
Make sure the wheel is on the ground. You will need an impact wrench and 36mm socket to remove the Hub.



Step 2.
Lift the car back up. Now you will have to remove the part that connects to the Differential. I placed a crowbar in the position in my picture and agressively pushed and banged. It will take about 10-20 strong, repetetive bangs to free it up.


Where I placed the bar:


Finally poped out:


Step3. Use a rubber hammer and bang the outeraxle through the knuckle assembly. You'll need something smaller to bang it with once it's inside the hub. (i used a hammer but it might mess up the threads so don't)



step4. Once it has been poped out, you can now safely and easily remove the entire axle assembly.

This is in reference to the 3rd picture above during the removal process. Notice the use of pry bar to pop the axle out. Now imagine pushing it back in and trying not to use a hammer for that purpose.
In that regard, I'd strongly encourage reusing the "stopper" ring instead of the new one that came with the 36mm nut. Forcing the new ring over the end of the shaft makes it bigger and therefore harder to go back into the diff housing. This forces you to hammer it in and possibly damaging the bearings inside the cv joint.

He only left out the part about draining and putting the diff fluid back in (Passenger Side).
