SOURCE: front drivers side axle removal
There's not any special tools. You need a socket to fit the nut on the end of the axle and a wrench to take the nut and bolt off the bottom ball joint that slides through the control arm. Take a bar, pry down on lower control arm, pulling ball joint out, then pull the upper part out by hand, away from the car, slide axle out of the bearing assembly. Take a pry bar, put between trans and axle, give it a swift, quick ****. The axle should come out. Remember to always put jack stands under the car and be safe. Phil

In the rear you DO NOT need a spring conpressor to remove struts. However in the front If your struts have the springs around them, then yes you definatly need a spring compressor. They sell and rent automatic spring compressors but they cost a couple hundred bucks, but if I was you I would go to an auto parts store and get manually spring compressors they are $30-$50 and you hook them up to the springs and tighten them down with a drill or air gun. If you dont have a drill or air gun you could use a wrench of rachet but that will take forever.

had the same problem it was a broken OD accumulator piston spring in the valve body. Just buy a transco SK 45RFE shift kit it comes with all the accumulator piston seals an updated and much thicker and stronger accumulator retainer plate AND the kit includes a "spare" set of accumulator springs (1 large & 1 small) in case the spring(s) are broken ,which they do from timt to time. It is only 6 bolts to remove the valve body (carefully) and 7 screws to remove the accumulator plate to access the accumulator pistons and springs. The instructions included in the kit are excellent and very straight forword, you won't need all of the parts but save them they may come in handy some day later.
