I got the driver's side done yesterday--It wasn't a terrible job once I had the right tools. I had to run down to Sears and grab a 3-arm puller ($50) to release the CV shaft from the hub. That, plus the 1-1/4" socket ($7.29), ended up saving me about $250 off the labor cost that I was quoted to have both sides done. Money well spent in my opinion. I'll likely do the passenger side next weekend-the DS was growling pretty bad, PS seems OK for now, but I might as well do them both. I'll probably take pics and post a How-to when I do the PS.
Thanks for everyone's input.
