SOURCE: what is the procedure to
You don't need the special tools that they use in this procedure, you can use a hammer and a block of wood to get the axle out of the hub and you can use a pry bar to get the axle out of the transmisson.
Notice: Care must be exercised to prevent the constant-velocity joints from being over-extended. When either end of the drive axle is disconnected, over-extension of the joint could result in separation of internal components and possible joint failure. Drive axle joints and seals should be protected any time service is performed on or near the drive axles. Failure to observe this can result in interior joint or seal damage and possible joint failure.
Notice: Prior to removal of drive axle assembly, cover all sharp edges in the area of the drive axle with shop towels so that the seal is not damaged during removal.
Any time the front halfshaft is removed, the transmission (the halfshaft male and female shank) and the knuckle sealing surfaces should be inspected for debris or corrosion.
If debris or corrosion are present on the sealing surfaces, clean them with a 320 grit cloth or equivalent. Transmission fluid may be used to clean off any of the remaining debris. The surface should be wiped dry, and the halfshaft should be reinstalled free of any debris or corrosion buildup.
Important: Verify that the drive axle is seated by grasping on the inner joint housing and pulling outboard.
Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Tighten the drive axle nut to 200 N·m (144 lb ft).

Nope, it seems as if your bearings in the top of the struts are gone, this will cause the same noise , also when you turn the steering wheel ,it will do the same.

the axle just pulls or snaps out of the trans, it is held in by an internal round spring clip, they are a real bear to remove the 1st time, u must pull straight out with a sharp jerking motion to get them to release, be patient it will come out.

SOURCE: how to take apart a cv joint
Usually you can't get the parts for them anymore -- most places only sell whole halfshafts. However, I've pulled apart a few back in the old days when we did, and this is how. Remove the clamps that hold the boot on and slide it out of the way. Wipe some of the grease away so you can see. There should be a spring clip around the shaft going into the joint. There are two tabs on that clip at one point (usually an indent in the joint shows where the ends are). Squeeze them together with a pair of needle nose piers and pull the shaft out. It just pushes back together, and the method of installing the clamps on the boot vary widely as there are about 4 different kinds, but they are mostly pretty easy. Don't forget to put the grease in the joints before youinstall the boots. If it is tripot (outer) joint, they are pretty simple, but if you take the joint itself apart you risk losing lots of needle bearings. If it is a plunging rezeppa (inner) joint, be even more careful as they come apart even easier.
