95 Ranger 4x4

What is the procedure for removing the spindle nut on a 95 Ranger 4x4? I believe that it is a Dana 35 axle. It came from the factory with Auto hubs, but now has Warn manual hubs. From what I understand, the innards are the same. Is there a lock ring somewhere behind the nut? Is any other tool required other than a spindle nut socket? Does the axle need to be held in place while loosening or tightening the nut? Thanks in advance for any info.

There's a snap ring on the end of the axle shaft. Remove it and the spacer, then the nut. There's a lockthat has to be bent out of the way I think. It bends up between one of the notches on the nut. The axle doesn't have to be held.

Re: 95 Ranger 4x4

It appears that there is a large multifaceted (with curves) nut at the bearings, and then in front of that is a four pronged bushing, maybe brass, and that is surrounding a four pronged sleeve. The inner sleeve has what looks like teeth, in that they are pointed. It moves independently of the outer one. I am not seeing any snap rings or easily identifiable ring retainers.
My guess at this point is that this may be some kind of hybrid setup with part of the auto hubs and the Warn hubs mixed together. None the less, I think I am looking for some type of clip in front of the bushings, or maybe between the bushings and the nut at the bearing, and then remove it, the sleeves and finally the nut. Does that sound right?
