i use a 3 arm puller to force the shaft out of the hub spline (do not hammer on the cv shaft at all, you will destroy it), and either a pickle fork or a specialy designed ball joint puller to seperate the balljoint from the knuckle. if you dont have a special puller and need to save the balljoint. try using a 6 or 8 foot steel bar to pry down on the lower control arm while another person strikes the knuckle at the balljoint location. note pin retainer type balljoints have a small slot which can be spread open alittle with a cold cut chisel or larg screw driver once the cv shaft is out of the way

Stick a large screwdriver or prybar between the CV housing and the transmission case, and pop it out. There is a little circlip in a groove near the end of the shaft inside the transaxle. It is there to seat the shaft and prevent it from slipping out during driving.

They are both the same. Sometimes it is called a half shaft simply because it is for one side of the vehicle.
