Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
Yes, it can be done, but you must be a good repairman with a lot of experience and a shed full of very specialized tools as pivots extractors, ring depressors and bearing presses.
These are the steps: jack the front, remove the tire, remove the cap and loosen the shaft bolt, remove the brake calliper, remove the brake disk, extract the pivots, depress the bearing and extract the wheel hub. In between you must remove all the security pins present and make sure the universal joint doesn't get damaged or dismembered..
Take out the old boot and install on the new on on the axle, realign the universal joint with the special tool (or by hand, but it will take a lot longer) insert the hub and install the other end of the boot. Now put the pivots back and continue to reassemble the axle.
A 4 hour job for a pro, at least a day for an amateur.
