Wondering if anybody had any tips to removing the rear undercarriage on my xcsp. Haven't done this in a long time and think i forgot everything, gonna replace slides and grease. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. If I remember right it's only those four bolts to drop it out?? Once again any advice would be great, thanks.

Loosen the rear axle bolts and track tension bolts and slide the axle forward before you remove the 4 bolts holding it in.

and when putting the skid back, make sure that the link @ the front of the rear shock points up, not down.

Thanks for all the hints, once i started it all came back to me. Biggest pain in the a** was the screw in the slides was stuck, Job took about three hours ( this included dinner and a few runs to the hardware store, and painted the undercarriage and greased EVERYTHING!!).
