Got a new lift bar for the tailgate window in my 88GW but can't figure out how to get the old one off. I don't want to risk breaking the window so am reluctant to pound on it.

Just found a screaming deal.........

Just found a screaming deal on a shaft from a 90 GW. Any reason why that wouldn't work on my 88? I assume they both use the Dana 44 rear end.
