Question about 1993 Toyota Corolla
If your talking about the drive (shaft ) axle
your gonna need a jack, some stands , wrenches pliers an impact wrench and a special socket to remove the axle nut.
you basically remove the tire , brake caliper and pads, and swing them out of the way, then loosen the axle shaft nut, pop it with the hammer to break it loose, then take the lower control arm parts and sway bar parts loose and out of the way so you can pull the axle shaft out of the transmission , move anything out of the way that makes it hard for you to get what you need done. BE CAREFUL WHEN doing this because the shock assembly is under pressure and can Jump loose and smash your hand or even kill you. but it can be done .

SOURCE: replace front shock absorbers
My answer is not going to help you because not only do you need specialized equipment, but you will need special experience to perform this job.
You would be required to completely remove the entire front strut assembly from the car. It has to be safety set up on jacks. Once you have the strut assembly out of the car, special spring clamps are needed to compress the heavy spring that is part of the strut. These require very special clamps that compress the springs. If this is not done right, it can conceivably kill a person.
Once the spring has been removed, the strut it self must be removed from the strut housing using an impact wrench.
Once both sides are changed, the car must be realigned in the front end, otherwise the car will not steer or track properly.
Over all, this is a major job. These are not shock absorbers, as you would know them, but are called McPherson struts.
If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

Attach the clamps and bolts to hold the pipe in place and tighten to 7-9 ft. lbs. (9-12 Nm).
Connect the water inlet and water bypass hoses to the inlet pipe.
Install the water pump pulley and temporarily tighten the four pulley bolts.
Install the drive belts on all the pulleys and adjust all of them to the correct tension.
With the belts in place and adjusted, the water pump pulley will now resist turning. Tighten the pulley bolts to 16-18 ft. lbs. (22-24 Nm).
Install the front engine mount (mounting insulator).
Confirm that the draincocks are closed on the engine block and radiator. Refill the engine with coolant. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks.
