I would have to disagree, although I have never done it that way. And it's the drivers side that you will want to "remove". I've never done this but it sounds like a great way to do it. Probably going to want a helper but it's way easier (at least it sounds easier) than taking the whole thing apart. Believe me I've torn down my share of TTB axles. I wish I had thought of hokies idea years ago.Alright thanks guys I'm just gonna dissassemble the whole thing. Taking the passenger side beam out would be way harder than dissassembling the whole thing.
