  5. There are tons of different final drive systems out there. And each one has a specific procedure to dis-engage it properly. with that said I had found over the years that On most single screws ( 1 drive axle ) As long as the diff lock is dis-engaged,( if equipped ) Pulling one axle will do. On certain twin screws, one from the first axle does the trick as long as the power divider is disengaged. If time and space allows I used to pop one axle out from the first drive, then move the casualty a few feet then look to see if the drive shaft turned at all. ( a quick mark with a grease pen or piece of tape on the drive shaft makes it easy to see if it rotated at all ). If it did not move then I was on the road, If it did then I would pull a rear shaft out as well. I cant say for certain that my system is 100% the right way, but it worked for me the very few times I had no choice but to pop axles. I was never a fan of pulling axle shafts and I can probably count on one hand all the times I ever had to resort to it throughout my career. I am most certainly a pull the drive shaft guy. And knowing this, i made sure to buy all the right tools ( proper, quality sockets, good impact as well as breaker bars and ratchets and a good u-joint press tool for those particular types out there ) to make removing drive shafts as painless as possible. Just be careful playing with all the different setups out there, especially with todays fancy stuff.
