  6. Hello I had to replace the rear differential in mine , the biggest part of the job was getting the car up high enough to roll the rear out , however you may be able to just move the rear back after removing shock links , and use the vulcanite seal one as mentioned in above post , I was planning to change mine but it had been replaced by the previous owner and was still sealing.Remember if you remove the springs lower mount they are left handed thread .Good luck.Gary
