Jack it up and remove tire.

Pull front brake tight and zip tie lever

Remove axle nut (21 or 22mm I can't remember)

Remove lower ball joint nut and hit lower a-arm, right next to ball joint, with hammer. This might take a few swings but it will eventually pop free.

Remove lower/upper shock mount and remove shock (you can work around shock but is easier to completely remove)

Now lift upper a-arm with hub/brake assembly still together; zip tie up and out of the way. Now your axle is free from hub and can be removed from diff by grabbing axle in center, pushing in and jerking out (may take a few tries).

Real easy, good luck.

Exactly as he said.Look at "c.v. boot replacement" in the how-to section on this forum.

Remove the boot clamp from the inboard joint and roll the c.v. boot back.Wipe out as much grease as you can and use a hammer and punch to tap the inner race,the joint will come off.MAKE SURE YOU ARE HITTING ON THE INNER RACE!
