Remove or disconnect the following:


Insert a drift or a large screwdriver through the brake caliper into one of the brake rotor vanes in order to prevent the drive axle wheel drive shaft from turning.

Remove or disconnect the following:

Nut and the washer from the hub


Do not reuse the hub nut. A new nut must be used when installing the wheel drive shaft.

Bolts (6) securing the wheel drive shaft inboard flange to the output shaft flange

Drift from the rotor

Stabilizer shaft link from the lower control arm

Wrap shop towels around both the inner and the outer wheel drive shaft boots in order to avoid damage to the boots during removal and installation.

Pull the wheel drive shaft through the lower control arm opening.
