any tips or tricks to getting the rear drive shaft out? ( still have the stock CV crap right now) the rear CV union would not pop even with BFH motivation. Got it out when I put the lift on but man, it was such a pain in the a__ that we just pullled the rear axle to seperate it! maybe it was just cause it was the first time out but, I need to pull it again to get to my upper control arm for some tweeking. That thing is trash as soon as I get some $$.

THe non threaded holes on the back of the rear axle. Get a punch and hammer on them really hard, or pound the rear round part with a rubber mallet. Its not easy but it will come out.
X2 on that. Once all the bolts are out a BFH will make it come off pretty easy.

Whatever you do, don't just pull laterally on the driveshaft with the front joint removed. It'll tear the boot on the rear joint. Don't ask how I know this!
