I have an Auburn Pro in my 89 gt, and I'm removing it to replace axle seals. What's the easiest way to get the c-clips out. Are you supposed to take out the spring-loaded plates that seem to be in the way of the c-clips first? I've already removed the bolt and center pin, but don't want to mess anything up. I put this thing in myself, with no problems, but can't remember if that plate is separate or not. Thanks.
