Raise car and block car cannot be supported by suspesion for

this operation therefore blocks holding car up need to be placed to

let the suspenion hang freely.The axel is attached to the spindle

with a roll pin at the transaxel a small punch or very stiff wire

is needed to tap out the pin .Remove wheel.Revove caliper wire it

up as to not be hanging by hose and to keep it out of the

way.Remove the large spindle nut,you can often get lucky and use a

deep well socket if not you need to rent the socket.Loosen castle

for tie rod tap the spindle arm holding the the tierod with lage

happer till tie rod breaks free do not beat on castle nut it will

mall threads.Tie rod spreaders can also damage the boots.Use hammer

on spindle arm to break free tie rod.Remove the large bolts to

strut and spindle. Remove pinch bolt holding lower ball joint to

strut get large bar to pry down lower suspension arm down.Remove

axel and spindle out as assembly.Using a large hammer and a piece

of wood beat shaft out through spindle.To assemble start new shaft

through spindle start spindle nut and pull saft though remander of

the way slide shaft to transaxle spindle tap pin in.Reassemble

speindle to strut ect.Use extreme caution when as to not pinch

fingers when guiding lower ball joint into suspenion arm. Raise car
