Its fairly simple.....

Jack it up
pull off the wheel
disconnect the strut from front knuckle (this allows you more movement... and its only 1 bolt)
take off bracket on back side of skirt (keeps the axel in place)
push axel in toward tranny while moving front hub outwards.. this should allow the axel to come loose... keeping the axel level should help it come out easier.


Thats pretty much it... I'm sure someone will jump in if I've missed anything.

Good to know, I'm replacing both here soon, they've developed a little bit of play.
