Changed the 300D differential and axles 5.5hrs

I swapped out my 300D differential and axles Tuesday night.
Started at 6:30pm and finished around 12. 5.5 hours.
The donor was waiting on the floor, that 5.5 hrs includes draining old oil
and washing and painting replacement diff.

TOOLS USED: 4 jack stands, 1 floor jack, 13 and 19 sockets, 19, 17, 15 box ends, 14mm allen socket for drain plugs.

NOTES: Left axles in rear end, left exhaust on the car, only removed right side brake caliper. Pulled drive shaft without having to remove brake cables.

HARDEST PART: When putting the pumpkin back in getting the 4 main studs
to line up and go back into the holes, front two first seemed best.

This job was done without any help.
