When i was doing my ball joint, my CV split and tore the boot. We managed to get the CV back together just fine (it was PACKED with grease, nothing fell out thank god) but the boot still needed to be fixed, and I was done doing it. It was already friday of my spring break.

About 1.5-2 hours of work if that, (including a tie rod end that Lakeville SSEi fubar'd) And they had a new boot over it and she was ready.

Definetly take it in. You'll need some special tools for the Hub, and you need a lot of room and time for it. Not to mention packing CV joints is messy..

Same here as Game...except I don't pry. If you grab the axle and give it the right quick tug they pop right out.

But, I think the point others were trying to make, is that Axle work is NOT for the beginner. It'* way too important a part to hope you did it right.

If you got a buddy nearby that has some experience and is willing to help you out, by all means, learn what you can!! If not, let a professional handle it. I personally would hate to end up seeing you need to post something about how it didn't quite go together right and you got hurt.

Just giving honest, heart felt advice. Not trying to knock anyone'* skill or motivation here....

Definitly don't do it yourself if you don't have the tools and help.
I started doing them when I had my GM x-body cars which were relatively easy.
When I got the Bonnes I went out and bought a 15 foot black wrecking bar to pry the suspension down to release the ball joint.
The axle spindle is on a taper and needs to be seperated first. They are a PITA if they are stuck. Had to soak mine on the PS side a week before it came loose.
