Once you have the passenger side/nearside drive shaft out use some thing long to slide in onto the head of the stuck drive shaft. use something soft like a old wooden broom handle then knock out using hammer. ford have used simple spring clips to keep there drive shafts in and thes are easily come by if deformed or squashed

How to remove the axel shafts from the Diff. 94 ford expl.


Do one side at a time, Jack the front wheel off the ground and remove. Remove the Brake Caliper and Rotor. Remove the large center nut in the Hub. Now remove the two bolts holding the lower part of the strut to the A-Arm and separate. You should be able to pull the hub down far enough to get the end of the axle out with some wiggling and possibly swearing, it not you can remove the lower A-Arm and just pull it off. PLACE A DRIP PAN UNDER THE SPOT WHERE THE AXLE GOES INTO THE TRANSMISSION BEFORE PULLING THE AXLE! Replace the axle to trany input seal and reverse order my instructions. Repeat for other side. This is a good time to replace Brake Pads and Rotors as well.

I'm trying to replace my ball joints on my 1997 ford ranger and was wondering how I remove the axle shafts? Do I have to remove the whole front end?


No, but you might have to separate the tie rod ends as well as the lower ball joints. With the axle nut off, have someone use a long pry bar between the a-frame and the car frame or fender skirt to pull the a-frame down and separate the lower ball joint. Then swing the hub away from the truck until it clears the a-frame. Next, pull the axle from the hub and finally pull it straight out of the tranny. You might need a drip pan in case the tranny leaks with the axle out.

To remove a front axle shaft 94 ford ranger remove rotor, and hub. anything else?


you shouldn't have to remove anything else, unless it is in your way, one end of the shaft should just come out of the spindle, after you beat it with a hammer...lol, but seriously, and then the other side you need a special tool it is a 2 prong fork, to pry between the tranny and the shaft, and that should get it out.

-->All AMC 20s have a 8 7/8" R&P and use a 29 spline shafts. The AMC 20 R&P is 3/8" bigger than the Dana 44, but it uses smaller shafts, smaller axle tubes, and the CJ version comes with weaker two piece shafts. The AMC20 uses a 29 spline shaft where as the later Dana 44 uses a 30 spline shaft. The AMC 20 housing tends to flex a lot which can cause breakage. This can be remedied by welding the tubes and/or adding gussets. The reason the AMC 20 flexes more than the Dana 44 is the shorter differential housing and smaller axle tubes. It's other flaw is the CJ version uses the two piece axle made up of a hub and a shaft. The hub end tends to break off under load which has created the market for one piece AMC 20 axle shafts. Unfortunately, the shafts are expensive ($350+ USD) and in some cases a special bearing must be used.
amc20co_.gif -->Identifying the gear ratio of an AMC 20 is a bit tricky. Dana axles normally have a tag on the left of the diff cover with the gear ratio at the time of build. The AMC axles have a code that has to be looked up in a table. The code is stamped on the housing boss to the left of the diff cover right near the axle tube. Good part about the stamp is it tends to stay readable longer than the tag, but you have to know the code. Since there are conflicts between what a code means for a narrow track and what it means for a wide track, don't count solely on the code to identify an axle. Bring a tape measure or know the source of the part. Specs Narrow Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type AA 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok BB 3.31 Open CC 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open N 3.54 Trac-Lok GG 3.73 Open Q 3.73 Trac-Lok L 4.10 Open M 4.10 Trac-Lok Wide Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type D 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok B 3.31 Open BB 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open AA 3.54 Trac-Lok H 3.73 Open HH 3.73 Trac-Lok C 4.10 Open CC 4.10 Trac-LokThe Trac-Lok is a limited slip differential. You may have to scrape away a lot of mud, paint, and rust to uncover the code. If you can't find the code on the rear, check the tag on the front axle. Both axles should be geared the same. The R&P ratio ranges supported by the carriers are 2.73 and 3.31-5.13. The 5.13 gear ratio is not available for the Dana 30 though, so it is rare to see it. 4.56s are the lowest common ratio between the Dana 30 and AMC 20. 5.13s are available for the Dana 44.
CJ AMC 20 The CJs used two versions of the AMC 20, the narrow track from '76-'81 and the wide track from '82-'86. Both versions use keyed, two piece shaft/hub design and 5 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Supplies of AMC 20s were exhausted in 1986 and some Dana 44s were used instead in the last of the CJ-7s.
From 1976-1978 a larger 11x2" drum brakes was used on the AMC 20. After 1978, a 10x1.75" drum was used.
SJ AMC 20 The Wagoneer and full size Cherokee also used a narrow and wide track version of the AMC 20. Both SJ versions used once piece shafts and 6 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Since the length and bolt pattern is different from the CJ version, the SJ shafts are not compatible without resplining and redrilling. I've never heard of anyone going to the trouble.

Well the passenger side axle just slides right out when pulled on. But the drivers side(the shorter axle of the two) has a clip inside the diff that you have to take out in order to get the axle out. Pulling the diff out is very easy, disconnect the front driveshaft and there is a bolt on the left side of the diff you have to take out and then the front cover bolts.
hope that helps
