i can only guess it is a 3.0l 4v well as far as the axle goes, the rh outer half shaft seperates at the splines on the intermediate shaft.
the intermediate shaft is the solid shaft from the trans to a bearing support bracket and ends after that. it is externally splined.
the rh axleshaft , inner cv joint, is internally splined.
to remove the rh axleshaft, remove the rh wheel and splash shield.
removed the lower balljoint pichbolt and seperate the lower balljoint front the steering knuckle. take the axle nut off and using a large brass drift or hardwood, drive the axle out of the bearing-hub assembly. DO NOT DAMAGE THE THREADS. also use some lubricant on the axle nut dissasembly. after the outer axle end is free, using the same brass drift or other, hit the inner cv joint and drive it off the intermediate shaft. inspect the splines closely because these fail and cause a no-drive condition.
then the mounint bolts for the support bearing and pull the intermedate shaft out, you will loose some fluid.

It is held in by a spring ring. You need a good strong pry bar and you position it between the hub of the axel and the case of the trans and **** hard pulling it out. It sometimes is seated well, but keep trying. It will fight you sometimes.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks a bunch. I wanted to make sure I wasn't mistakenly trying to pry a snap ring off. Took long enough to get the axle nut off easy from here."
I am assuming you have disconnected the lower portion of the front suspension from the frame and separated the axle from the bearing assembly (where it goes through your front brake rotor).. if so.. using a small pry bar, insert it between the back of the axle were it enters the transmission, a little bit of pressure should allow the axle to come out.. remember to replace the oil seal before you insert the new axle
