assuming you know the basic concepts of the suspension and using jackstands and tools and such, its really simple. youll need a 32mm socket to undo the axle hub nut. then undo the spindle from the upper control arm and undo the TRE from the spindle also allowing the spindle to fall outward. youll then be able to pull the cv axle out of the hub and it should just pop right out of the diff. install in reverse order.
