You might want to mention what chassis or what trans you have

If locking your hubs and turning the tires doesn't turn your diff it seems there is already something not right, unless you have the "auto" locking hubs. In theory you could need to turn both tires if the open diff is slipping when you turn only one

But you can put your trans in neutral and your tcase in 4wd and turn a back tire might do it. Again, You might a need a friend to turn the other side if the resistance is high enough you just spin on the open diff.

That should turn the tcase flange.

Also an option, bolt the shaft to the diff, jam a bar through the u joint and use that to turn the diff to align with the tcase.

Was it on rally suspension or just slammed in the rear and engineless up front?

I didn't realize they were progressive. My thought was if you know whats there it's easier to decide what to replace them with, but yeah progressive makes it harder.

You need to know the diameter of the spring "wire" (the actual metal), the number of free coils, spring outer diameter and free standing spring height.


Scroll down a ways, it has the formula and some examples/visual aids.
