I just noticed that I posted the picture of the differential carrier two times. Sorry about that.
About the differential carrier, once it is loosened from the chassis, as the drive shaft is still attached, it will put pressure on the central drive shaft bearing. I used a ratcheting rope and secured it to relieve any pressure on this bearing, as it is enclosed in a rubber mount, difficult to replace
