SOURCE: rear differential axle removal
remove the 'locking bolt', once the pin is out the c-clips shoud fall out unless this is a floating axle in which the axles are attached at the hub.

Is the c/k 3500 4 wheel drive?If it is 4WD,you must retain the same gear ratios for both front and rear axles,or the transfer case will be damaged.If it is 2 wheel drive,you can install any gear you like.I believe the Ford E350 rear axle is a Dana 70,as i have rebuilt 2 of that model,along with Dana 60's.The Ford unit likely will not be a bolt in.It will probably require professionally welding new mount brackets on the Ford axle housing.The width needs to be measured from inside the brake backing plate to the other brake backing plate to see if it will physically fit.Good luck.

you will need to unbolt the axle and slide it out there should be 6 or 8 bolts on the hub that sticks out of the center of wheel. take this out and there is a spanner nut inside you will need to bend back locking tab and unscreww nut and drum and hub will slide off you will see seal inside hub

1) Dana 35 or 44
