I'm not positive, but you might take a look at the threads protruding from the nut to see if it is reverse threaded. I know a lot of pinion gears have a reverse thread on them. This would mean you would turn your wrench clockwise to loosen the nut. If you can't see the thread, check with your parts supplier to see if it is a reverse thread.

Use a crayon or piece of chalk and draw a line on the rear yoke in the differential and on the driveshaft. Do this on the front end of the driveshaft/trany/transfercase also. This is so the driveshaft goes back into the same position you took it from (otherwise you may get a vibration). Undo the 4 bolts on the rear axel yoke. Pry out universal from the yoke. Pull the driveshaft out of the back of the trany/transfer case. You may loose fluid from the trany/transfer case rear seal so check it when you reinstall it

How do you remove front driveshaft in a 87 ford ranger 4x4?

on the drivers side of your truck right behind the front tire the front drive shaft attaches to the front differential yoke. There is 4 small torx head screws (bolts) holding the drive shaft to the yoke. Remove these 4 bolts and take out the u bolts that hold on the U-joint put a large screwdriver or something between the u-joint and pry and it should pop loose. There is very little space but the drive shaft has to go out forward under the front differential and the yoke going into the Transfer case may need a little help coming out. Again the large screwdriver may help if it doesn't slip right out. Putting it back is the exact reverse. If your gonna leave it out and drive it cover the hole into the transfer case to avoid dirt and debris clogging it up and making putting the yoke back in a real pain. Good luck.
