The service manual PDF is on this site. Read that for the procedure.

Here's the link to the DIY section. http://dodgeforum.com/forum/1st-gen-...wers-faqs.html If you scroll towards the bottom there's a link to an online copy of the FSMs. They'll have the procedure and tools listed in it.

I haven't been in that particular axle, but I've been in other c-clip ones. In the Dodge, don't you have to remove the carrier cross pin to be able to push the axle inward to get at the clip?

Oh I forgot about that, yes you have to remove the carrier cross pin in the center between the axel shafts or the axels cannot push in far enough to disengage the C-clips. Here is a picture of the center pin (large one) before I rebuilt the carrier. You turn the carrier over until you can access the center cross pin set bolt, loosen then remove the large pin. I updated my DIY, thanks!







Anyway once the clips fall out and you very gentally remove the axel shafts then you can get to the axel bearing and seal. After removal of the axel and axel seal/bearing it should look like this. Install you new bearing and seal and don't forget to grease the seal lip with a bit of axel greese before sliding the axel back in.

Just have both rear tires removed and on jack stands. Don't remove the carrier, just turn it until you can get to the set bolt to loosen and so you can slid out that main center pin. Then push the axel is and the C clip falls out. When you remove the axel be sure to support it, they are long and lanky so hold outside and under. Remember to lube the new seal so the axel doesn't damage it when putting it back in and hold the weight off the seal.

Sometimes the bearing might not want to come out, I've used a 3 finger puller with a slide weight to pull them out before. Kinda like this: http://www.spx.com/en/power-team/pd-slide-hammer-set/
