Question about 1990 Chevrolet K2500
You need to remove the shaft to do a good job (I don't recommend the split boots). Once the shaft is out, I usually just replace the whole thing, as the difference in price between CV joints and shats is small compared to the labor of taking the CV off the axle. To change the shaft, you have to separate the lower ball joint and possibly the tie rod end as well. Remove the axle nut. Then you swing the hub assy away from the trans and pull the axle out of the hub. Next, put a drain pan under the trans in case it leaks a little with the axle out. Pull the axle straight out of the trans and reverse procedure to reinstall.
