DIY - AXLE Removal
AFter you have removed the shock assembly (as shown above) it's time to remove the AXLE
Make sure the wheel is on the ground. You will need an impact wrench and 36mm socket to remove the Hub.
Lift the car back up. Now you will have to remove the part that connects to the Differential. I placed a crowbar in the position in my picture and agressively pushed and banged. It will take about 10-20 strong, repetetive bangs to free it up.
Where I placed the bar:
Finally poped out:
Step3. Use a rubber hammer and bang the outeraxle through the knuckle assembly. You'll need something smaller to bang it with once it's inside the hub. (i used a hammer but it might mess up the threads so don't)
step4. Once it has been poped out, you can now safely and easily remove the entire axle assembly.
