Are there any specialty tools required for replacing the CV axles on a 2005 kia optima?

Not an easy job if you are planning to do at home. A good socket set will help in removing most bolts. You will need the proper axle nut socket to remove the axle nut. This can be a very tedious procedure without the use of air tools. The CV axle may require a special removal tool that slips in behind the inner joint to seperate it from the transmission as these can be diffucult to remove.

How do I replace my inner axle on the passenger side of my 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4 4.7L. I lent my truck out and the C clip let go of the CV axle. The intermediate axle spline is stripped and I need to change...

Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

How to change front wheel bearings on 2000 olds intrigue I have a bad left front wheel bearing. Also I have changed the rear ones. Should I go ahead and change the other side?

Yes you can try replace it

What you need to do is go to an auto parts store such as AutoZone. Then buy the Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly-Front it runs around $150. Once you have the part you need to take off the Caliper and rotor.
Then you need a 36 mm socket to take off the cv nut. You will need a breaker bar if you don't have a tourque wrench, but remove the nut. Then take a hammer and punch, and place the punch on the cv axle and try to knock it through the hub, pushing the cv axle into the boot a little.
Do not pull the hub off before loosening it from the cv axle, that could cause you to have to replace the axle boot. Once you got the cv axle free take the 3 bolts off the back of the hub. If you can't get to the 3 bolts behind the hub you can take the 2 bolts out of the top of the strut and that will give you more room. I was able to keep the strut bolts in.
Once the bolts are out it may be hard to remove the hub. I had to use a lot of WD 40 and a brass hammer to get it off. However, most auto parts stores will rent you a tool that will help you take it off, the same tool will also help with getting the hub free from the cv axle if the hammer and punch did not work. Once removed put the new one on. Makes sure you put some lithium grease on everything before installation.

I need to remove the outend of the drive axle and am having troubles getting the axle out of the hub. Every other place has indicated that it just slides nicely out with little or no force. However on this...

Put the axle nut back on backwards (flat side out, so flat is even with the axle end...give it a sharp blow with a decent sized hammer and it will break loose.
