(Thanks to phreebsd for this information)

1. Remove wheel

2. Remove cotter pin then loosen the center bolt holding on the knuckle.

3. Remove bolts that attach A-arms to knuckle

4. Remove knuckle form shaft

5. Give shaft a few swift firm pulls

6. Should have popped right out.

7. Now carefully remove stock clamps (these are better than the ones that come in the kit IMO)

8. Remove C clip on the inside of the cv joint that holds in the joint and balls

9. Now remove the other part left on the end of the shaft (these's a c-clip on the end )

10. Clean the joint WELL. Make sure you leave no sand or grease. Make sure it's totally dirt free else it will be popping later.

11. Slide new boot on shaft

12. Put clean joint back on shaft (put clip back on) and place the other end of the shaft on and put larger clip back on the inside of the cup

13. FIll it will grease that comes with the boot - squirt is in both sides

14. Clamp both ends of the boot with the stock clamps

15. Squeeze the boot a good bit to distribute the grease inside and work the joint a bit also

16. Stuff axle back into rear diff

17. Put knuckle on end of shaft and tighten bolt with cotter pin

18. Attach a-arms back to nuckle with 2 bolts

19. Put on tires

20. Smile cause you did it yourself.

Did you try pushing in on first? You can pull the other axle and use a punch to reach threw the diff and knock it out from the other side.

----that is all---

Didnt try pushing on it first. I will try that. I would worry that hitting it with a punch from the other side through the differential might damage gears... i guess "proceed with caution" would apply here haha
