Rasie vehicle, remove tire, axle nut and caliper. remove tie rod end from spindle, remove lower ball joint nut and seperate from spindle and pull spindle from axle, with pry bar pop axle out of trans housing. it is easyer to replace cvc axle than to replace or repair cvc joint.

I would recommend that you replace the complete axles instead of just the boots. The boots may be busted/worn and when the get torn/busted they allow sand/dirt inside the CV joint and the bearing inside the CV joint become worn, it all depends on how long the boot has been ripped, its easier and a lot less messy to R/I new axle. For the wheel bearings they need to be pressed in by a hydraulic press. As far as the procedure goes you have to elevate the two front wheels and secure by a lift of jack stands, then take off tires and take off brakes/caliper and caliper chair along with the rotors. You have to remove center nut on axles and remove lower ball joint from knuckle assemble/ hub. Then remove bolts holding knuckle/hub to the struts. Pull knuckle from axles and the hub is out. If you don't have a press and the proper tool you can take the two hubs and the bearings to a machine shop and they will press out and pressing new bearing for you. As for the axles they both can then be pulled/pryed out of the transmission at this time and be fixed or replaced. caution look out for leaking transmission fluid when you pull axles out. The axles are only held by licking rings and can be easily pulled or pryed out. Have something ready to catch fluid. Replace axles in the reverse of taking out. use a piece of wood on the end of axle if there is need to tap it back in with a hammer, listen for a click or snap when its goes back in to transmission. Good Luck

A lot of work & a pain in the rear if you don't have the right equipment. The biggest part is squeezing the coil springs and busting out the upper and lower ball joints. If you've never done it before I'd recommend taking it to a shop that has the pneumatic equipment to do the job. This is a real knuckle buster and worth paying somebody else to do it.

Possible wheel bearing, u-joint, differential noise, or binding cv joint...you really would not know if they are good without removing them from vehicle, or watching the vehicle wheels move while on a lift. very unlikely that it is a motor mount. a single clunk when taking off from a light would most likely be your motor mount. the mounts just stabalize the motor and transmission from shift and torque
