Took differential tube and case off passenger side to get oil pan off. And when I did that gears came out.I dont no how they go back. Also the fork with spring for actuaitor came out. Just looking for diagram or picture how it goes together. The manual I have is useless. Its Haynes. Ive looked at several sites most want money.

If internal carrier components have been changed, see reassembly steps 4 - 9 of RIGHT AXLE TUBE ASSEMBLY under OVERHAUL. If internal carrier components have NOT been changed, clean mating surfaces thoroughly to remove any oil residue. Ensure shift shaft spring is in position.
Apply sealant (GM 1052942 or Loctite 518) to carrier sealing surfaces. Install axle tube to carrier housing. Tighten bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table. Connect stub shaft to inner shaft flange and install 6 bolts. Using a crisscross pattern, tighten bolts evenly.
Raise axle tube and install bolts to secure frame to tube. Tighten nuts to specification. Connect tie rod end to steering knuckle. Tighten tie rod nut to specification.
Install stabilizer bar, link, nuts and bolts. Tighten bolts securing stabilizer bracket to frame. Tighten nut securing stabilizer bar to lower control arm.
Reconnect harness connectors for indicator light switch and actuator solenoid at right axle tube. Install differential carrier drain plug. Fill drive axle with SAE 80W-90 GL5 gear lubricant. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Recheck gear oil when vehicle is level.

Thank you. Could you give me a better image or picture of the actuator springs and fork being put back together in the differential of my 97 gmc 4x4 k1500.
