The GKN I bought this time had 32 the ones I did a few years ago had 36.

people were saying be careful prying on the diff to get the axle out.. Idk everyone prys every other car brand axle out it's pretty standard I doubt it could damage the diff but I rented the slide hammer free so I dont risk it. I rented a few other tools to help too. Some people have problems getting the axle out of the hub. Mine tapped out easy but it was replaced before going in was a bitch and half though. I cleaned the threads and put grease too. just kept hammering the rotor it finally went in enough to get he nut started.
