4wd replacement

I need to replace the front right axle assembly for my 4wd. I got the used parts but was wondering how long it was going to take to replace them. Has anyone does this before? It's a 1997 with auto locking hubs (at the moment)

You mean the axle shaft? I beleive that side is a big PITA as you have to remove a C clip in the diff. Gotta drop the pig, and that's not fast...

you need to get to the ( c-clip ) INSIDE the front differential/pig!! So that being said you need to remove what ever is necessary to open up the diff to get to that ( c-clip ) which holds in place the RIGHT SIDE DRIVE AXLE.

Have fun
