Step 5: Rear Differential and Axles

Rear differential and axles guide.

Cut off the upper rear portion of the power plant frame that contains the inserted nuts for the differential mounting bolts. Keep this section instered into the differential.
The rear differential can be inserted from the rear.  Place a jack underneath the area the where the differential sits and set it level with the bottom of the car.  Insert the differential from the rear, and allow to rest on the jack.  
The differential will the stock 2 bolts for the front section, inserted form the bottom. The rear mounts will use the supplied 1/2" bolts and nuts. Insert all the mounting bolts hand tight. Tighten down the rear rubber mounts, then tighten down the front 2 bolts.

To install the rear axles, you need to remove the upper bolt from the spindle.  This will allow the spindle to rotate out of the way. Insert the axle into the differential.  It sometimes needs a little extra push but the axle should "click" into place.  NEVER tap on the threads with a metal hammer.  Then insert the outer cv into the spindle untill the splines line up and start to pull through.  Bolt the spindle back into place.  Using a deep axle socket, tighten the axle down.  Repeat for the the other side.
