FIRST REMOVE THE WHEEL SECOND TAKE A SCREWDRIVER AND BEND THE PART OF THE LOCKNUT HOLDING THE HALFSHAFT OUT THIRD REMOVE THE NUT OFF THE STEERING ARM AND USE A BALL JOINT SPLITTER TO PULL IT APART FOURTH DO THE SAME WITH THE TIE ROD END. PRY THE HUB ASSEMBLY BACK FROM THE AXLE, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO CUT YOUR BRAKEHOSE IF THE AXLE WILL NOT GO WITHOUT MORE FORCE, HAVE SOMEONE PULL THE HUB ASSEMBLY AND HIT THE MIDDLE OF THE AXLLE WITH SOMETHING ROUND TO FORCE IT THROUGH THE HOLE, BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE SPLINE GROOVES ON THE HUB WHEN YOU HAVE THE AXLE OUT OF THE HUB ASSEMBLY, JERK THE AXLE STRAIGHT OUT OF THE TRANNY AND IT SHOULD POP OUT WHEN YOU HAVE THE NEW AXLE JUST ALLIGN THE AXLE IN THE HOLE OF THE TRANNY AND PUSH HARD, DO NOT JERK THE AXLE BACK BECAUSE IT WILL DAMAGE THE NEW ONE REPEAT THE REST OF THE STEP BACKWARDS TO REINSTALL YOUR AXLE.

AdditionI had to give the axle a little more force by carefully using a screwdriver between the axle and tranny to pry the axle out. Don't use to much force since you don't want to crack the tranny. Do not forget to lubricate axle (tranny end) with a little engine oil before inserting the new axle. This prevents a dry shaft from spining the seal in the transmission.
