They are pretty easy to do. I found my replacement at a local junkyard for $40, with lifetime garentee, and they only take about an hour to install so im not too worried about losing anything .
1. pull the wheel off.
2.pop out the upper BJ. (I used a bottle jack between the UCA and the LCA to pop them apart.
3. pull the hub nut, then use a wheel puller (rented from Autozone) to pusht the CV out of the wheel bearing
4. use a crowbar to snap the inner CV out of the diff.
5. reverse for install.
The hub nut should be torqued to arround 200 ft/lbs. If you are really worried call the dealer. I normally just put on the 18" ratchet and put all my weight on it.
