To change the CV Joint, remove the tire, then remove the brake assembly. Next remove the nut that hold the bottom A frame, now with a pry bar, force the bottom A frame and don't worry about the shock absorber slaming down, it won't go down any further than it already is. Now you can slide the CV Joint out and you won't loose any oil because it's on a spline. After replacing the CV Joint put everything back togethere but don't over tighten the axle nut. 150 Lbs is about right. Hope this help you out.

The above sounds good, but your better off just replacing the whole half shaft. Follow the above but use a reman half shaft.

The CV joints on a 1995 Ford Taurus can be replaced by removing the front tires, and the nuts on the lower ball joint. Next, the lower ball joint will need to be removed and the CV joint can be removed.
