front axle shaft u-joints hard to change out on a 93'???

so i drive from work to where my parents were camping for the long weekend (6-7 hour drive) and i just get into town and i hear a loud grinding, screaching, scraping sound coming from the front end. im figuring its my axle shaft u-joints so im wondering how hard are these to change out?? im ordering the u-joints on tuesday will be able to swap them out on thursday or friday night. do i have to pull the whole axle shaft out??

also this week im swapping out a truck bed (bought another one thats nicer its off of a 98' ranger so im rolling around with 98' tails), doing an oil change and changing out the water in the rad to coolant.
