Question about 1988 Dodge Dakota
I have an 88 dakota with 5 bolt axles, can I swap the 5 bolt axles into a 93 posi rear end to replace the 6 bolt axles. I want 5 bolt in the end and need to know if the splines on the 5 and 6 bolt axles are the same between those years
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.

There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.
