SOURCE: 96 CHEVY CAVALIER. R&R DRIVE AXLE SHAFTS. AUTO TRANS.

If your looking to replace them, wich is what most do today, it is cheaper to purchase a axle with new cv joints than to rebuild them. It is a very simple job in todays cars, remove tires remove lower tie rod , remove nut in center of the rotor and pull wheel assembley to the side hanging from the strut, pull axle out replace the transmission seal, push new axle in. When putting wheel assembley on, use a hydraulic jack on bottom of the rotor to push it to the axle splines and put the new nut on .

SOURCE: how to replace a timing chain 2000 chevy cavalier

I am familiar with that vehicle but generally with timing chain replacement, the engine needs full access for pulley and cover removal and in some cases the cylinder head requires removal.
Generally timing chains last so that they only need replacement at engine overhaul and it is not an economic proposition to have to replace a chain unless some relative degree of engine work is also required at that time. 

Engine timing chains generally have a tensioner on them which maintains tension, but some chains can wear significantly and cause timing cover to be "ground away" because of "slop".

If the engine is making the noisy rattle of the timing chain against the cover etc, I would schedule a top overhaul (head, machine, test and valve grind) with the chain replacement dependent on mileage with the degree of action.

Some simple simplex timing chains (type of chain similar to motor bike chain) may be replaced without dismantling the engines but I would expect your chain would be a "duplex" dual sprocket type, these are most common. 
These chains are not generally expensive but replacing them can involve a fair amount of work. 

Good Luck and hope this helps, Others will have different ideas.

How do you get balance shaft drive sprockets off?


You need to remove the balance shafts first. Be VERY careful or you will end up breaking off the tab that the small hold down bolt goes through. You need to remove this little bolt first of course. I found that using a pry bar on the bottom of the sprocket itself seemed to work best.
Once you have the balance shaft out, clamp it in a vise using wood or something similar so that you do not damage any if the surface that rides on the bearing. Then remove the 15 mm bolt holding the gear (sprocket) on. Re-install the new gear and torque to 37 ft-lbs. The new gear is slotted so it can only go on one way. Do not mix up the intake & exhaust balance shaft gears. Good luck.
