the driver side cv is kind of a pain. just set the spline and wiggle it while pushing it in. you'll know it's set when you can't pull the shaft back out.......this disertation sounds like doggy sex.

what exactly to you meen by getting the stub of the axle?

I used a large screw driver, make shift crow bar and 10 pound brick to hit the crow bar and pop them off. I was in a hurry and didnt have a large enough hammer. It worked perfectly, damaged the brick by breaking it in half but i got the job done. :lolhittin
And i did try to buy a hammer at the closest kragen but, they only had tiny weenie hammers, so i left. No joke, i told them to get bigger hammers and they said they would but i have yet to see any at their store.

That is hilarious. But, I have to admit to similar desperate tactics in some of my repairs. I guess there is some truth to the saying that desperation is the mother of invention.

If you ever do this again consider simply cutting the inner cv boot and removing / replacing the outer part of the axle. If your tranny seal on the drive axle isnít leaking (or the carrier bearing bad on the right side) I recommend always reusing the inner portion of the axle. Just clean out the old grease, add new grease and put a new band / clamp on the new boot that comes with your remanufactured axle. It really is easier and sacrifices nothing of the quality of your repair. Most of the problems with changing out axles come with the hassle of removing the old one or ruining the tranny seal when either removing the old or installing the new axle. I hate it when you spend hours stuck on that one bolt (or stuck axle) or cause another problem (leaking tranny seal) when you do a repair. Of course Iíve done both Ė and likely will again.

With the axles he has, there is no need.
The inner joint unbolts from the "stub".

If youre talking about removing the axle from the differential in the transmission a pickle fork and a hammer will do it.
