so i pulled the diff from my lexus today

it went something like this...

jacked up the lexus and put it on owens jacks stands (thanks a ton for letting my use them)

and just to be safe i put some wood under the wheels

the tools, there ended up being more

jack under the diff

first 6 bolts removed off the cv joints (3 from each)

then i jacked it up off the blocks of wood

put down the hand brake and spun each wheel 180 degrees

took out the other 6 bolts

then took out the 3 bolts that connected the flex disk to the drive shaft

and then the two front diff mount bolts

i love these, got them at harbor freight

lowered it onto the jack, one axle popped out, i hat to give the other one a few taps with the hammer
I also had to get the end of the crowbar between the flex disc and the driveshaft for separate them
