    In order to get to the fork and the sliding collar on your '02 HD you'll need to remove the passenger side differential tube and axle assembly. First, remove the bolts that hold the pass side half shaft to the end of the axle flange. Then remove the two large bolts that hold the axle tube to the frame.Then just unbolt the axle tube from the side of the aluminum differential housing and pull the whole works down out of the truck. NOTE: When you pull the axle tube away from the diff housing,the thrust washer and a spring will fall out of the shift cavity on the side of the diff so be ready for it so you don't lose them.
