Hi Dana,

The transmission has to be repaired or replaced anyway. You might as well separate everything on the way out. That makes the R&R process lighter and easier. If you haven't done this before you will need a heat gun, a 30 mm socket, a 12 mm hex socket, a big breaker bar, a big torque wrench, and some wire brushes.

Here's something to ponder as you do this. You are supposed to assemble the swingarm and final drive with super duper locktite. That's why you need the heat gun and wire brushes the first time you take it apart. i'd venture to guess that most folks do not use the super locktite when they reassemble the driveline. Most use good ol' blue locktite. Some don't use any at all. I'm in the blue locktite group.
