I need to replace both outers on my front end. The inners look fine. I started on the left side this afternoon and got all the way to the big nut, which refused to budge. I sprayed it real good with some penetrating spray and will let it sit overnight. Then I guess I'll try an impact wrench?
Since I'm only doing the outers, I can still do this without removing the whole axle?
I'd love to call one of you guys that has some experience with all this if that would be ok to someone?

to do the outers you have to pull the inners part too. quickest way is to find a boot stretcher and stretch boots then you don't have to take everything apart

Yeah, I got the outer boot off earlier and could not see how the bearing comes off of the axle?
I hate to try and stretch at boot that much, in order to get it over the bearing.
So there's no way to get the outer bearing off of the axle?

thanks much !!! One question before diving into this> how do I get the spring pressure off the shock when removing the upper bolt and when replacing it or is it not an issue? Also, removing the upper inboard bolts eliminates the need to remove the brake caliper and steering rod if I am correct correct????

I went ahead and ordered in the full set of boots for the front and they should be here tomorrow. Then the fun begins!

finished changing out front boots. went pretty well. Hard to get those bands tight with hands so greasy but managed to get them secure. actually hardest part was getting those little snap rings off and on. bought the pliers but they were almost useless.

Thanks for all the great help. Now I just gotta get the carb working right.

Well, we yanked, jerked, and banged on both front axles in our attempts to free them from the differential. FINALLY, the right side popped free. The left, well, it's still firmly locked in place. Any suggestions?

I couldn't punch it out. There's a shiney silver rod blocking the path. Barely enough room around it for a small screwdriver.
I think I found the solution and you guys may say I messed up, but I just removed the inner boot from the left side, then removed the clip that holds the axle into the spindle, and just pulled the axle out, easy as you please. I know it may be a bit tricker to pack the grease and redo the band with the spindle still in the differential, but I'm going to give it a try.
