The procedure is as follows:--
1) Raise the truck's front end and support it on jack stands. Remove both front wheels.2) Then disconnect the brake calipers and mounting brackets from the discs by removing their bolts with a wrench, then slip the brake discs off.3) Disconnect the nut connecting the drive axle to the hub, placing a pry bar between two of the wheel studs to keep the hub from turning.4) You can remove the hub bearing and the brake disc shield by removing the hub's retaining nuts from the back side of the steering knuckle.5) Carefully pry the inner CV joint assembly from the front differential using the pry bar.
Note: -- Make sure you don't damage the differential while prying it out.Then guide the drive axle out from underneath the truck.
6) Detach the cross member by removing its mounting bolts, disconnect the drive-shaft from the differential pinion flange and support it with a rope or wire, then disconnect the vent tube from the differential cover. Raise a floor jack under the differential to support the axle assembly. Remove the assembly's bolts and fasteners at the left engine mount, pinion nose bracket and right engine mount.
