The drive pinion, which is the gear splined to the flange that the driveshaft connects to, comes out of the housing through the rear after removing the diff. Remove the pinion nut and use a big hammer and a brass drift to drive the threaded pinion stem out of the front bearing. Most are not extremely tight.
