Question about 1989 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
If you are talking about the carrier (what the ring gear is bolted to) Both axles need to be removed before it comes out. However, You cannot take the assembly out of one housing and just bolt it into another...the ring and pinion gears are a matched set and even so need to be re-set using dial indicators and specific procedures. If you don't do that, at best it will be very noisy, at worst, it will fail in a very short time.
See if you can remove the unit as a "drum to drum" assembly and transfer the entire part rather than what you are doing. Chances are you have not damaged anything on the good one yet, as long as any side shims have not been lost or mixed up.
