I finally got my differential bolted to the subframe/ carrier. After learning the hard way I think removing the sway bar could have saved a ton of time. I could not get past the dam sway bar. I didn’t have help either. Having a second set of hands to help align or move out of the way would have been nice. I still need to finish bolting up the CV joints. I need to run each bolt in and out to remove all the grease from the bolt holes. I did this with the differential out but when I installed the first couple of bolts I still had grease oozing out. I read a few posts on these bolts backing out. Starting with clean and dry bolt holes along with loctite should help. Still need to bolt up the cv joints, reinstall the fuel filter, sway bar, and the ebrake hose clamps. Hope to finish up this week. I really appreciate all the help that I received from this forum.

Thanks again, Mike
