The old axle had a truss and dual shock brackets installed, but the old U-bolts could be removed around them. New, larger U-bolts are used with the new axle, so the old ones can be cut off if necessary. The old shocks were also unbolted at the axle and left dangling from the top mounts. Finally, the driveshaft was unhooked from the pinion yoke and strapped to the frame for safekeeping.
