Pretty much... I had to drill/chisel/pound out the bushings though, which was only possible because I had everything disassembled. Removing the bushings was by far the most difficult part...

I think I used my habor freight shop press ($199 ) to do the 2 smaller diff bushings. 20 tons of force in 1 square inch freaks me out...
