Thumbs up Axel replacement.94 bonneville se

Okay well here it is i got the time to upload the pics and this is my thread/write up on how to replace a drivers side axle in a 94 Pontiac Bonneville SE

Okay so first i always lay out the tools i will need


Then jack up the car..make sure to put stands and blocks in place..


this is what i started with


then remove your axle nut (i work my way back from the outside)



Then remove the cottar pin and crown nut on your tie rod and take your picklefork and remove the tie rod from its hole



Then remove your sway bar end link..this is not a must but makes prying the lower control arm down to remove and insert ball joint Much easier


Then remove your ball joint cottar pin and crown nut then you are free to pry down the control arm off the ball joint


now your ball joint is free


you then have the room to move your strut/hub around to remove the axle..to remove the axle from the hub with the nut off tap it with a hammer on the outside where the nut was then when free out of the hub push it as far in as you can to release the lock ring and it should pull right out..you may have to get behind it and pry a little


you can now install your new axle i always put the trans end in first after putting some trans fluid on the end of the shaft.then insert into your hub and ut your axle nut on a few threads deep


you can then pry the control arm back down to put your ball joint back in the put your ball joint nut and cottard pin in


i then put the tie rod back in its place with nut an cottard pin then tighten your axle nut and then replace your sway bar end link
