Question about 1998 GMC Safari
I just bought a 98 AWD safari and had the rear diff shatter. I also have a 96 - 2 wheel drive safari that I hit a deer with and was totaled. Can I put the 96 diff in the 98? I was told that the exchange books say it can but there are different gear ratio on the market. Does this matter? I am thinking that because I am going into an AWD, i need to be sure to have the same gears. But I do not know how to tell what is what.
Suppose if ya count the teeth on gear and they are the same should be good

Yes you do have to pull the axle and make sure you put everything back in the same place you removed it from. The ring and pinion shouldn't have to be bothered. You will have to remove the rear end cover to remove the axle. Its very easy to do. There is a pin inside the rear end that has to be removed to pull the axle. Pay attention to how you take it out and put it back the same way. It sounds as if you can do this with no problem.
