Half shaft removal

Hello Ladies&Gents.

Do I need to drain the oil from differentials before attempting to remove half shafts? I was thinking to place some shims or change kingpin bearings to cure a little death wobble but I'm not keen to drain oil again as it's been recently changed. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks.

just jack up and place axle stand under the side you intend to work on
leave for a short time and the oil will run down hill
worked fine for me ;)

As long as you drain the oil into a clean container you could reuse it no bother.

As above regarding jacking one side up, this sends the oil to the other side.

However, why not just whip a king pin out without stripping the front axle down? Pop a shim on it and pop it back in.

No need to worry then. Just put a little instant gasket on it.
