SOURCE: CV Joint Axle Replacement
It's not an easy job, and a very messy one! If you have never done CV's before, I suggest you take it to a CV specialist, as they will do it quickly and cheaply in comparison to the hardship you will have to go through doing it yourself. These vehicles are common for the axles rusting into the hubs and siezing in there, and often the whole hub needs to be removed and the axle heated and pressed out. The new CV's often don't come with a tone wheel for the ABS system and you may need to swap the old tone wheel onto the new CV joint, and measure the alignment of it with the sensor when refitting.

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?
on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

Average time should be around 2-3 hours. Every shop charges different hourly rates. Dealerships will be around at least 80 an hour, smaller shops will run lower.

The CV joint boots? Hah.. if you've never done it before get a mechanic to do it. You'll just run into more and more problems if you mess up. There's more to it then just replacing the boot. You'll also need to check the cv joints for damage and repack them with high pressure grease.

The cv is changed out as a rebuit unit. Buy axle CV Replacement at parts store. Go from there. The part will tell you what you need to do. good luck.
