^^that about covers it. Here's a quick pic to show what the front end should look like while you're takin' it apart, but you'll have the front differential still hangin' in there lol.......

So you remove it from the diff before you remove it from the hub?

I want to say, Driver side, pull it out of the knuckle first, then when your installing it, put it into the diff first..

Passenger side, make sure you put the the outer end through the knuckle first or your gonna have a hell of a time getting it into the diff.

thats what worked for me atleast

its just a judgement call, at the rate i broke CV shafts i couldn't see a reason to buy a new one.. it wasn't at you, it seemed like an official write up.
