I am going to be pulling the carrier out of a Dana 60 to install new seals. I understand this is going to be a pain. I have the axle out of the truck and I am no too worried about getting the carrier out. I have a huge prybar. My plan is to put the carrier back in with the same shims it came out with and put those shims on the same sides as before. I have never done any Dana axles before and I need to know if I will be able to get it all back together without a case spreader. It seems to me that if there is enough pre-load to justify using a case spreader, then getting these shims back in where they were without destroying them is almost impossible. GM's are easy with the adjusters and Fords use thick enough shims so you can use a hammer and punch. But I just dont know much about these. Does anyone have any insight or tips?
