I am the poor soul that could not get the drivers side half shaft out of the differential. I ended up destroying it at the boot. Leaving me with half a half shaft. Which I didn't care because I was replacing it anyway. I then found a used differential online and decided to go that route. I easily removed the passenger side half shaft, drive shaft and then dropped it out with the dang half of a half shaft still stuck in the differential. I then put the replacement differential in, connected the passenger side half shaft and the drive shaft and (drum roll) now I am at the point of all this. Changing the drivers side front half shaft. My question is, do you have to lower the LCA in order to fit the new half shaft? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am at my wits end.
