The first time removing the axle / carrier will be the hardest...

I didnt use any heat when i removed mine and it was a slow and steady process. basically what i did was remove all the required stuff....

Chain, Brake caliper, brake rotor, right wheel hub, two lock nutts.

Take a piece of wood and place it on the right hand side of the end of the axle. Then with a dead blow hammer beat the piss out of it until it comes out. Now i would check to make sure there is no damage being done to the threads durring this process.

I guess if you like to do this again in the future you can use stock parts. But you need to get a good after market carrier. RPM makes a super heavy duty carrier that can take what ever you throw at it. 928-771-9363 ask for Brad.

I found the first time apart to be bad, after that I haven't had a problem with the stock carrier, although I probably maintain it more often than I used to knowing what a bitch it was to get apart. I found putting everything together with assembly grease seems to help keep it easy to get apart.
