    Does anyone know where I can find a good write for CV axle R&R? I found one for the newer Tacomas but everything looks diffrent. At this point I have everything torn down to the bare spindle and I am not sure how to proceed. I assume I have to split the ball joint, but is that it to freee the cv axle?

    Thanks

    yeah unbolt the ball joint and whack the lower control arm with a hammer. should pop it free. if not, your not trying hard enuff.

    Ahhh thanks??
    I had to unbolt the shock and disconnect the sway bar mount to get the control arm to drop. I see now that the hub does not need to be removed but I was do for a bearing repack anyway.
