REASSEMBLE AND INSTALL DRIVE UNIT
The cross shaft assembly must be installed in the carrier first so cross shaft bearing preload can be established without
interference of the thru shaft and pinion assembly. The thru shaft, pinion, bearing and cage may be assembled at the bench and then
installed in the carrier.
