I know there are several Jeep guys on here and I'm not getting much info over at Jeep Forum, so I'm posing the question here. The carrier bearings in the Dana 30 on my '99 Cherokee **** the bed yesterday. I'm planning to pull the drive shaft, differential carrier and axle shafts. I'm then going to reinstall the stub shafts and carrier bearings, so I can still run the vehicle. My question is, am I going to be able to get the diff carrier out without using a case spreader or is a spreader absolutely necessary?
