That's the one. U have to undo that anyway if your going to re seat the axle. That think can be a PITA to get out sometimes. When removing it, put a jack under the rear hub where the trailing arm bolts up to the hub and jack it up to take some of the pressure off of it. Makes it easier. Then, after you inspect the clip put the outer axle back in the hub and use the hub to seat it in the diff by pushing inwards.
