    I knocked the spider gears and clutch pack out of the passenger side rear axle when attempting to replace it I know what order the clutch pack goes back in . Whats the best way to get the spider gears back in and is it all just straight forward . I'm getting a few conflicting reports from various people . Its a 92 renegade with a Dana 35. I would greatly appreciate any advice .

    Replacing the spiders should be pretty straight forward. It will be the easy part.

    I was told by a certain individual that various things had to be lined up correctly when you put everything back .I cant see how , and since Ive never done it before I thought I would like to get some advice before I just put the new one in .

    If you don't get the spider gears lined up right you won't get the pin in. So keep trying until you do get the pin in and your are good to go.
