No but you need some special tools to support the output shaft, and remve the speed sensor rotor from the shaft.
EXTENSION HOUSING Remove Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) retaining bolt. Remove speed sensor assembly and "O" ring. See Fig. 26 . Remove extension housing and seal. Remove output shaft sleeve and "O" ring (if equipped). Remove speed sensor rotor from output shaft (if necessary). Install Gear Puller (J-21427- 01) and Adapter (J-8433) on rotor. Pull rotor from output shaft. Install Output Shaft Support Fixture (J-29837-A) on output shaft. See Fig. 7 .
58 is output shaft, 59 is the sensor rotor. I would raise both rear wheel off the ground, remove the sensor, and rotate the driveshaft as I inspect the rotor for damage.
