Replacing complete axles on a 110

I just bought 2 complete axle assemblies for my 110 and I am curious about the amount of time it will take to install them. They just bolt right in so I am not sure how difficult the job is. Can someone coach me up on the time it will take to complete the project.

It all depends on how mechanically savvy your are. If you've never done it before, I'd give yourself a weekend, or a day per axle. It's not hard, but rusty bolts and things not lining up will give you fits.

If you are lucky enough to have help, then maybe a full day.

Good luck and let us know the actual time!

have lots of cutting wheels or a hot wrench handy in the event the bolts are rusted to the bushings.

in addition to cut off wheels , an air wrench will be your friend.

sawzall or blue wrench to burn out the radius arm or trailing arm bolts @ the axle end. Just in case. Ask me how I know...

depending on what is what with the brakes, you may want to keep your current calipers attached to their lines and dangling off a bungee or tie wrap under the truck. That will save you time bleeding brakes. But will cost time removing the calipers.
