Tearing down the 2.5-ton axles isn’t terribly difficult, but can be back-breaking work due to the weight of the components. We used a forklift to remove the nearly 300-pound third member from the housing, but an engine hoist would work just as well. It’s important to note that there are three nuts on the housing that can’t be removed until the third member is raised slightly.
