After a huge fight, I've managed to replace the faulty passenger side axle after having to remove the diff, while the inner cup and cover was still on.
I ended up lowering the cradle, un-doing all mounts jacking the engine/trans, lowering cradle to end of threads to squeeze the diff assembly out through the side. ABS sensor manager to meet its end via slide hammer, still need to get one.
However, I did manager to replace the side diff seal, which was leaking a bit and replace my Trans mount which was def bad. Compared to the new Poly Trans mount from johnny the old one was ripped and sagging almost an inch.
With the new solid-ish trans mount the harsh shifting provided by the Prowler TCM is alot more bearable. They have smoothed out over the past 150+ miles as well. I have to say the shifting is quite enjoyable and feels like a shift kit. Rather in A/s or Drive the shifts are done right then and there. I would say the Special still has some better upshifts but this prowler tcm makes the dowsnhifts engage like a manual with no slip. Also it will stay in lock up alot longer if you do not touch the brakes.
So, car needs a major bath and detailing.
