    If so whats the best way to get to the top bell houseing bolts? i cant seem to get to them from under the truck do i need to go at it from top or drop the back of the transmission thus allowing it to pivit and then get to them?

    This is a first for me on a RWD transmission. i have done quite a few FWDs though
