Loosen the hub nut in the center of the wheel. Then raise the car and take off the wheel. Finish taking off the hub nut. Take of the brake caliper and rotor. Remove the stabilizer bar from the lower arm. Seperate the lower ball joint from the steering knuckle. You may have to use a puller to push the cv axle out of the hub. Then jently pry the other end out of the transmission. That is how you take the halfshaft(aka cv axle)off. I don't know if your going to rebuild the joints or change the whole axle, but I just changed the whole axle on my 87 LeSabre. It just seemed alot easier.
