Yes. You can remove the brake disc and hub, deDion ear and drive shaft as one without undoing the 41mm nuts. I use a trolley Jack under the diff with a 200mm square bit of plywood on the pad ... enables you to lower the diff single handed after removing all fasteners.

I usually pull the whole hub assembly rather than undoing the driveshaft nut. Just need to be careful not to damage the diff oil seals when re-installing - its quite a heavy lump!
