You're going to need an axle puller and a slide hammer, or you may be able to do it with a ball joint tool or a pry bar but the axle puller is best. You probably should change the axle seal when you remove it also so you'll need a seal puller too.i have to change the cv axle on my 90 corolla i just bought and ive never done it before. i know my way around cars i was just wondering if theres anything special i should no before buying the axle which i dont even no the price of and replacing it?
Other than that I think you just pull the lower ball joint, pull the axle nut, and I think you can get it out.
The first time I did it I took off the brakes and stuff too, thinking I needed to, but the last time I left all that stuff together and it worked fine. my axle was broken though
