CHEVY DIFFERENTIAL RING GEAR BOLTS

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem

Are the bolts holding the ring gear to the differential assembly left handed or right handed threads and is there a special way to break them loose?

Right handed, loosen them evenly across from one another in a star pattern. Have you done this job before? It can be challenging.
