Yes, she is the boss, just ask her. Make sure you loosen the brake linkage ahead of time, that will make sure the brake band doesn't catch the brake drum and cause you difficulty during removal. I'd say the most important thing to pay attention to (other than not dropping the final drive on your toe) is making sure you pull it straight out until the axle has cleared the rear differential seal. You don't want those axle splines to ruin that seal because replacing that seal requires taking the differential supports off. That turns this job from a minor annoyance into an immediate PITA. Careful reassembly is just as important.

You can determine ahead of time if your rear axle housing seals are leaking by looking directly under the rear housing just below the axle. There is a hole in the bottom of the rear housing with a cotter pin sticking out of it, one on both sides. This is your tattle tail hole to let you know if your rear end differential seals are leaking and prevents oil from getting on the brake bands if they are. It is very disappointing to start the project with these holes dry and finish the project and find them leaking.

Once the final drive housings are off, you remove the little rectangular inspection cover off the rear housing near the brake linkage, then remove the setscrew that holds the break lever on and you can remove the brake bands.

One more question: what are you calling the differential supports?
