SOURCE: How to remove drive axles
the lower ball joint has to be undone.cotter pin and castle nut
the axle nut 36mm has to be undone.
.the control arm swung away from the end of the axle shaft.
using a pry bar,pry the knuckle away from the transmission,as just pulling out will not release it.
installation is done by lining up the shaft in the transmission and using wood or a brass drift to hit the shaft to seat it in place.
the lower conrol arm is a little tricky to move so that the hub fits over the axle .on average about 50 lbs force is needed to move it out of the way.
be sure to replace the cotter pin with the head fully inserted into the castle nut slot.
cheers and good luck.if you run into problems,get a haynes manual,it clearly explains and has pictures,and then you have a service book for your car.
