I have removed the shaft and are trying to get it back in. Do we have to drop the diff to get the new shaft in.

It should push in and click into place. Make sure everything is aligned properly.

Joe, these are not like a conventional push in drive shaft, I will see if I have a manual and check the installation procedure, the L/H axle on these are a super pain in the **** to do.

We dropped the diff and everything is going alright now putting back together (if you have a bull bar on you need to remove it) the rest is easy
