    Hi you will need to drop the lower ball joint off and remove the outer driveshaft nut - the inner is a snap ring which should pop out if levered right
    quite easy but you will lose gearbox oil
    cheers

    thanks Mate, But Would Just Changeing Shafts be Alot Easyer Than Changeing the Cv Joint Itself On the Existing Shaft

    Thought is said that -either way the ball joint will have to come off along with the cv joint nut - so if the price is right replace the whole shaft
    cheers
