Ive just started on my 8.8 rear end build up for my 91 fox. ive got the axles out and the spider gears in the diff pulled out too, but when i go to pull the diff itself out it will not budge one bit. From what i know and what i have read it should just come right out, do you guys have any suggestions?

assuming you took the main bearing caps off,sometimes they're shimmed in there pretty tight...

if you wedge a crowbar in there to stop the dif from spinning(underneath the dif, prying outward),put an impact wrench on the pinion nut and tighten with the impact..the dif should walk its way out

I just used the prybar with a block of wood so not to damage the housing gasket area.
