Last night I noticed a new noise coming from my rear passenger wheel. A little pop and grinding. It sounded like the bearing gave a little and the brake pads were making contact with the drums every now and then. Jacked it up. Took off both wheels and hubs and checked them against each other. Drivers side has no play. Passenger side moves up and down. Damn. This is a post '67 Ford 8" rear end. My understanding is that once the retaining bolts have been removed from the backing plate and housing, the axle should slide straight out. I removed the nuts and bolts holding the axle to the housing. I've put a substantial amount of grunt behind it but I think I'm missing something. Any hints from you guys that have done this before? I'm a noob at taking apart an axle.
