Reassembly (Outboard Joint)

1. Wrap the splines with vinyl tape (A) to prevent damage to the outboard boot. See Fig. 37 .

2. Install the new ear clamp bands (B) and outboard boot, then remove the vinyl tape. Be careful not to

damage the boot. See Fig. 37 .

3. Seat the new stop ring into the axle shaft groove (A). See Fig. 24 .

4. Insert the axle shaft (A) into the outboard joint (B) until the circlip (C) is close on the joint. See Fig. 38 .

5. To completely seat the outboard joint, pick up the axle shaft and joint, and drop them from about 4″ (10

cm) onto a hard surface. Do not use a hammer as excessive force may damage the axle shaft. See Fig. 39 .

NOTE:

Refer to the exploded view as needed during this procedure. See Fig. 25 .

6. Check the alignment of the paint mark (A) with the outboard joint end (C). See Fig. 22 .

7. Pack the outboard joint with 4.9-5.3 oz. (140-150 g) joint grease included in the new joint boot set. See

Fig. 40 .

8. Adjust the length of the axle shafts. See Fig. 30 . Adjust the boots to halfway between full compression

and full extension. Make sure the ends of the boots seat in the groove of the axle shaft and joint.

9. Fit the boot (A) ends onto the axle shaft (B) and outboard joint (C). See Fig. 41 .

10. Close the ear portion (A) of the band with boot band pincers (Kent-Moore J35910) or equivalent (B). See

Fig. 42 .

11. Check the clearance between the closed ear portion of the band. If the clearance is not within the

standard, close the ear portion of the band further. See Fig. 43 .

12. Repeat steps 10 and 11 for the band on the other end of the boot.
