Very simple. Shops charge by the hour for half shaft replacement, so hours are high.

On Toyotas, much like Hondas, removal is fairly easy. Jack up the front end, secure with jack stands and remove the tires. Put a drift in the fins of the rotor through the caliper. Loosen the half shaft bolt. Remove the calipers and tie them off so that the hoses do not stretch or get in a bind. Remove the caliper mounting bracket. Remove the tie rod nut and separate with a tie rod separator tool. Loosen the lower ball joint nut and separate with a ball joint separator tool. Lift the entire spindle unit up and swing it out so tha the half shaft is out of the hub. Using a small pry bar, remove the half shaft from the transaxle case. There is a small clip on the end of the half shaft which is used as a retainer to hold it in the transmission. Make sure that you have a drip pan below because fluid will run out a little. Replace the same way and torque to specs. Should only take a couple of hours to remove the old shafts from both sides. Also, don't think about rebuilding the axle if you don't have to because it is usually cheaper and the rebuilt unit sometimes comes with a "lifetime" replace warranty. Repair On!!!

I had the same thing happen to a 91 celica. I pryed. I pounded. I even used a hydrolic wedge. I finaly gave up and just replaced all the bearings. come to find out, my prying, pounding and wedging must have pulled something loose in the transmission/diferential because the car just grinds when it is in gear.

How many axles in a Toyota 4Runner?

If it is 4 wheel drive then there is a solid axle in the rear and a trans-axle in the front. the trans-axel has two CV shafts on either side connecting to the front tires. If it is 2 wheel drive then there is just a solid rear axle. and your front tires mount to spindles.
