Hello,
I'm rebuilding a Chrysler 8.25 with a Limited Slip Differential and when I tried to remove the Ring Gear Bolts from the old diff three sheared off (I'm hoping to find a solution, so I haven't tried the last 7 yet). I'm using a 1/2 impact and either the setting is too low to even budge them or they snap. Any advice?
Thank you in advance :)

is it factory? someone may have used red lock tite and that requires heat to get out

That's a good point. I just assumed it was factory because the rear axle is un-modded, but it IS a 27 spline in a '99, so what do I know

i broke a bunch in mine (96 cherokee with 27 spline) when I regeared to 4.56's. so if the axle is in a 99, it's definitely out of an older jeep.
