I would definitely jack up the whole front of the car and put it on jackstands.
Safety is very important and cars are heavy. Do not trust your safety to a rubber o ring (hydraulic jack) or a small steel part in a mechanical jack.
Before you jack up the car you will want to remove the axle nut as it is hard to remove while the vehicle is jacked up.
remove ball joint connection to hub and tie rod end connection so that you can swing the hub out of the way and the cv shaft will clear.
This sometimes can be difficult with the anti sway bar still attached
Swing hub assembly out of the way and pull out the cv shaft.
There is a circlip that is inside of the transmission differential and sometimes it takes a bit of force to get it out.
You may need to pry between the cv joint and the transmission carefully to get it to pop.
Installation is reverse of removal.
Good luck with your project!
