I'm going to pull the rear axle, to see how much damage was done, when I ran out of grease. So how high should I lift the rear end? I was thinking about lifting the frame to 24". Or should I go higher?

Next bummer, I think, I left my axle book, in the camper, that is in winter storage a 100 miles from here. Guess, I'll be ordering a new one Tuesday.

Happy Holidays!

I'm always impressed with Steve's videos. Looks like Steve has the rear end up nearly 3 feet.

I did find my axle booklet, so a little light reading tonight.

The stands are 27". With the 2" square tubing on top of them the frame is 29" off the floor. Plenty of room.

If you remove it by taking spring shackles apart, only need to raise and jack the frame about 6-10 inches. If you take it out with spring attached and wheels removed, less than 1 foot.
