check the tech section
baisically pull the wheels, brakes, and rotors. Take loose the axle nut. There will be three 12pt bolts that hold the wheel bearing on. Take those out and pull the wheel bearing off. Pull the axle out and there ya go :bigthumb: Then just press or beat the u-joint out with a hammer like you would do in a driveshaft.
keep and eye on your axle seals you don't want to shove dirt in there when you put the shaft back in
