jack up the car, put on stands. remove the front wheels, remove the nuts on the tie rod ends,and the lower ball joints, give the joints{ on the thick part of the metal } a good hit with a heavy hammer. this should let the joints come free.take the tie rod end loose first, then using a long pry bar pry the lower a frame down to release the lower ball joint.take the half-shaft nut loose . tap the shaft from the outside to free it from the hub.then push it through, when the shaft is free from the hub, pull the shaft to see if they are tight , they shouldn't be give them a sharp tug or yank to free them. but only do 1 at a time. then reverse this procedure to put back together,you do not have to have an alignment if you choose not to have one.
