How hard is it to replace the 2 front shafts on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 6 cylinder.They it's better to replace them instead of trying to replace the CV boot thats split out.Should I do both or just the one side?

    This sounds like it might be a little to hard for me to do.Do you have any idea what a mechanic would charge to do it?

    This might be a litttle to hard to do myself.How much do you think a mechanic would charge to replace the 2 front rebuilt shafts?

Hi, this is how to replace 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Unstake the wheel cover in the center of the wheel and remove the wheel hub nut using the impact wrench.
  • Loosen, but do not remove, the lug nuts loose on the Cherokee's front wheels. Turn the lugs 30 degrees with a tire wrench.
  • Raise the Cherokee onto jack stands. Jack up on the front jack point located behind the radiator. Place jack stands under each of the pinch welds and lower the Cherokee onto the stands.
  • Finish removing the lug nuts and the wheel.
  • Remove the damper fork from the shock assembly and lower connecting arm. To do this, unbolt the damper fork mounting bolts.
  • Separate the lower control arm from the steering knuckle using the ball joint separator. Wedge the teeth of the tool between the control arm and the steering knuckle and hit the end of the tool with a hammer until the two components separate.
  • Move the hub assembly out of the way while you pry the half shaft out of the Cherokee's transmission with a pry bar. Be careful not to damage the transmission seal while doing this.
  • Install the new half shaft. Installation is the reverse of removal.
