Before raising your car you remove your cotter pin that holds the CV shaft . Then you remove the nut in the middle that holds the CV shaft . Then you can raise your vehicle and make sure you sure jack stands for safety .
Once you have your car secure then you remove the tie rod .
Then you can remove the sway bar link with a allen key and wrench .
Then you go to the bottom of the ball joint and remove all three nuts .
With a big screw driver or a pry bar you can lower the control arm so that the stud will seperate from the ball joint from the lower control arm .
Then you pull forward the whole stut and wheel assembly and the CV shaft will slide out . If you have a brass or lead hammer you can tap it out to help .
Before you go under the vehicle make sure your jack stand is secure so that the vehicle doesnt drop on you .
You can either use a big flat head screw driver or a pry bar to pop out the inside of the CV shaft from the transmission or there are some indents on the barrel of the shaft that you can put a flat head screw driver and bang it out . Once you see it seperating some oil might spill out but that ok .
It's best that you replace the seal while you are there . If it's not leaking in my opinion then leave it there .
Make sure you check your CV shafts . There are two different types one with ABS brakes and one with out . Make sure you have the proper shaft . Then when you are done you can put the shaft back .
Give another inspection before you put your tire back on make sure all your nuts and bolts are tight . Make sure the inner part of the CV shaft snaps . If this doesn't then the inner part will pop out later on while driving .
