on a 90 xj will the passengers axle slide right out like the drivers side?

i'm not sure what you're asking, what is it you're trying to accomplish?

No it will not slide out the other side, differential is in the way. Yes you will have to remove the disconnect. Good time to add a cable actuator to the disconnect.

thanks. i just needed to know if you need to remove the disconnect to get the axle shaft out. going to replace the u-joint.

If you're pulling the outer shaft, it should slide out without removal of anything in the C.A.D. unit. On some models, the inner shaft will have a c-clip keeping it in the differential according to some reports, but I've not found one yet.
