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.

4 wheel drive quit at some time didn't know it...drives fine only rear wheels pulling..could it be electrical ??


I hava a 1999 Grand cherokee loredo V8 with full time 4wheel drive. when the rear tires slip I am hearing a poping noise in the front end when the 4wheel drive engages. I was told by one person that it could be the chain in the transfer case slipping but I was told by a jeep salesman that this year jeep did not have a chain. Could this be the CV joints in the front axels?

When driving there is a clicking sound coming from the driver side wheel. and when turn right or left there is also a clicking.


Sounds like you have a C/V shaft/axel about to fail. There are rubber boots that protect these from dirt. If the boot is cracked this will lead to premature C/V failure. Try disengaging the 4WD if you can to 2WD.
