First break the axle nut free, but do not take it off (to loosen/remove axle nut may require you to unstake the nut using a screwdriver and hammer). Then loosen the lugnuts. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the wheel and tire. Now remove the axle nut. Remove the brake caliper and support up by the top of the strut (you will most likely need to remove some of the bolts holding the brake lines. DO NOT let the caliper dangle from the brake line). Remove the caliper guide. On the bottom of your strut you will see a yoke (upside down horseshoe looking thing), remove that. Now break the lower ball joint free. There will be a torsion rod running from under the radiator to here. Remove those two bolts. The spindle assembly should now pull forward and swing towards the back of the car. Now climb underneath the car. Place a prybar between the inner cv joint and the transmission and carefully pry the axle out. Yu have to be carefull ,otherwise fluid will come out.
Let us know if you want something else please accept the solution.
Thank You for contacting

My 1985 chev blazer will not engage the front drive axel. I had the transmission replaced and i now have unconnected vaccume lines around transfer case/transmission area. Is there a valve or something...

if the light for 4wd does not come on it could be that a vacume line has cracked or become seperated from the ball under your battery listen under hood for a hiss, my hisses usually come from somewhere around the heater box where the lines join together on the way to the ball or the vacume ball may be bad the front wheels will not enguage without vacume applied as vacume pulls the locks in. The xfer case is working if it turns the short driveshaft
