3 We're not going to spend a lot of time showing the steps required to get the necessary housing components out of the vehicle (such as the third member for the rear) because, frankly, if you can't figure that out, you don't need to be messing with a gear swap. On the rear it's a good idea to replace the outer axle bearings (not included with the installation kits) on high-mileage trucks. The front requires removing the differential housing completely, which can be done without removing the CV shafts with some finesse and a prybar.
