The 8 1/4 Chrysler rear is a C-clip design, which means the axleshafts are held in the housing by C-clips on the end of the axleshafts. After popping the cover and draining the oil, the crosshaft retaining pin and crosshaft are removed from the stock carrier. With the axles pushed all the way in, the C-clips can be removed with a magnet, and the axles can be removed. The tires and wheels don't have to come off the axles, but it's easier since you need to pull the axles all the way out when adjusting the gears and bearings.
