  You need to undo the cv joints and the diff bushings {2} and dont
forget the diff lock hoses. I think thats about it.? All common tools
and nothing to difficult. 

   You can clean and inspect things like the exhaust, inner cv joints,
the end cv joint on the drive shaft and take a look at the workings of
the diff lock servo.
