A friend has a honda accord , mid 90s, that needs a drivers side front axle,   pretty sure the cv joint is bad and its easier to just change axles.   She said the rebuilt or new axle is about $60.   Anyone changed  one of these before?

Response:

It’s not all that bad of a job. 1st remove the keeper from the axle/hub. 2nd, jack up the front end and remove the tire. 3rd, remove the lower ball joint and the sway bar link. 4th, with a pry bar move the lower control arm from the spindle and the drive end from the hub assy. 5th, with a pry bar and SLIGHT pressure pop the driven end from the trans and it’s in your hand. To assemble reverse the proceedure.
