remove the old ... install the new ... tools you will need a T30 for the front of the shaft where it connects to the front diff. for where it connects to the t-case you will need an alean (sp) head tool ... with the superlift shaft you are going to need a short head inorder to clear the double coupler of the shaft .... its very easy
