Hey i found i broke a axle shaft on a 80‘s gmc 7000 i pulled the hub cover off and the splined shaft and half of the axle came out. 1 how do i get the other half out, and 2 if the rear end no longer pulls did i break the passenger side axle as well ? or does only one broken cause it not to pull ? Also i was going to change the fluid but what else should i look for/ inspect so i don‘t have to do a full rear end rebuild ? And should a new axle just slide into a splined female end or do i have to pull something out like a spider gear to get the old one out and the new one in? thanks
remove rear axle cover and try to remove shaft.I doubt you broke the other shaft but I would inspect it.
