I have never done it but do you have a service manual that would have the procedure in it to answer your question?

I don't think it will be in the manual. I'll have a look later. Surely you can do it with the engine in?

I have. Got to get the rear differential out of the way. But I think I was able to leave the axels hooked up. Hardest thing was trying to torque the nut back on after putting it together. I was able to get a pipe wrench on the collar. After the fact though, I thought I could of just had it in gear and have someone stand on the breaks.

so you can move the diff back far enough to remove drive shaft?

Might be easier to remove the top bracket that holds the rear diff. Then the lower bolts come out and the rear diff will move rearward with the axles still connected.

Yes you have to remove both brackets to slide it back far enough

At $1700 in labor they had more than 2 hours into it. You earlier stated when you took it in it would be 2 hours of labor...where was the rest of the labor time invested?

$1700 in parts and labor to do everything, only two hours of the 1700 spent fixing the rear seal.
