If the chassis looks the same as 09/10 it should be the same.

Cool, thanks. I think I will try it myself. The local dealer wants 300.

I gotta start doing this for profit. My record is under 25 minutes. $300 is just insanity.
I have never once removed the brake caliper on any sled. Leave that all in place, remove d.drive, slide shaft to the left and out.
The guys removing the caliper from the chassis, are doing so with the assumption that the shaft is rusted solid into the bearings, so unbolting the caliper lets them just flex the whole assembly, then fight the track off of it.

What about the reverse. Do you have to disconnect anything? If need to take reverse apart is it just the 3 screws ontop or have to take clip off and how do you get at it?
