If you haven't ever done it before the first step is to take it to a professional.. the second step is to pick it up when its done.. good luck

I just did a set in my S60 and posted a tread in there "hows my pattern look" and I linked some writes up and servise manuals for a dana60.
Check pirate4x4 there lots of good tech arctics on rear ends there. And goggle a service manual for the rearend you have.

I have a spare 10 bolt in my garage with way too much play between the ring & pinion to put back in a car so I may pick up a set of used gears and try throwing them in myself

I built up a spare and I think it's a great way to do it, there's no stress about the car being down and the rear is alot easier to work on out of the car. I found this install manual from Yukon to be very helpful:

Also this info from Randy's ring and pinion is Good.
