I am converting all the air struts to normal ones. They have a conversion kit for it. Removed front left and noticed the axle is bad. So, I want to remove it before putting everything back as far as strut goes. Can you give me instructions on what is needed to remove the axle?

Hi,

That is a good idea. I attached the directions below for replacing the front axle. Take a look through them and let me know if they help.

Also, let me know if you have questions or if I can help in any way.

Take care,

Joe

I don't think this is what I have. Talks a lot about dieselZ. Also, first picture is for the rear shaft which has bolts, mine has no bolts going into the transfer case.

Also, the outer half came out cause the second boot in was torn and when I pulled it out only the part that connects to wheel plus the bearing aide came, the housing for the inner part is still in. So, it maybe he'll now trying to get it out.
