From the force that is required to bend a sway bar there is damage to the body under carriage and panels. To tear the boot you may be lucky in that the rubber was touched with out hitting the axle. make sure that the wheel bearings are good and properly adjusted then jack up under the suspension and turn the wheel and measure any run out by placing something near the axle that is solidly attached to the floor. It the axle is bent you will see it touch and miss and touch again in the same place.

SOURCE: 97 toyota celica outer cv boot replacement passenger side

have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

SOURCE: how to take out and reinstall new axle on 1996 toyota corolla,

1. Jack up and support car on jack stand. Make sure to chock wheels and or lock the parking brake on.
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove cotter key, castle lock and nut at center of rotor that attaches the axle. - If you lack and impact gun to remove this - it is easier to loosen this nut with all of the wheels on the ground.
4. Remove outer tie rod from spindle, Tap out with hammer. Should not require much force.
5. Remove the single bolt from the lower ball joint and separate from spindle.
6. Pull axle out of spindle and remove from transmission. This may require you to drive this out with a hammer and punch ( I use a brass punch), make sure not to damage threads if you intend to reuse the axle.

To install reverse the procedure. Make sure to replace any cotter key removed with new ones during install.

Torque specs you need are

Ball Joint to Spindle = 91 ftlbs
Tie rod to spindle = 36 ftlbs
Drive axle hub nut = 166 ftlbs

I would definitely stay with tire balancing first. So much less expensive. Axle trouble is usually accompanied by noise which comes and goes with turning the wheel or braking.

SOURCE: Trying to replace the wheel bearings, cv joints,

If you bought new drive axles, they may not have given you the right ones (too short) - they did this to me with my 93 Subi - (I own a 93 Toyota Corolla DX).

Make sure that you are pushing the drive axle in as far as it will go into the tranny - and when putting the other end in the hub assembly - make sure it is lining up (there should be grooves on the axle that MUST lign up with the grooves on the inner portion of the hub assembly.

After pushing the drive axle into the driveline you should not be able to pull it out by hand at all (without effort).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

A most likely suspect would be your CV joint on your front axle. It usually makes a clicking noise while turning sharply, when they first start to fail. Often you can visually inspect them, and see a torn boot , or leaking grease, but you are most likely in need of a rebuilt axle installed. When I change them, I usually just replace both axles, and wheel bearings at the same time, since the car is apart.

CV axle shaft replacement


Instructions
1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

  • 4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
  • 5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.
  • 6. Unfasten the thru-bolt on the vertical sway bar with a socket wrench and remove the bolt from the sway bar. Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
  • 7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle.
    Install in reverse order.

    How do i replace a 1993 toyota corolla front axle


    if your talking about the drive (shaft ) axle
    your gonna need a jack, some stands , wrenches pliers an impact wrench and a special socket to remove the axle nut.
    you basically remove the tire , brake caliper and pads, and swing them out of the way, then loosen the axle shaft nut, pop it with the hammer to break it loose, then take the lower control arm parts and sway bar parts loose and out of the way so you can pull the axle shaft out of the transmission , move anything out of the way that makes it hard for you to get what you need done. BE CAREFUL WHEN doing this because the shock assembly is under pressure and can Jump loose and smash your hand or even kill you. but it can be done .
