Axel shaft replacement!

I will be upgrading my front shafts with a set of G2 shafts today! Any pointers on how to do this would be great! . I have seen videos and I recently changed my ball joints so I have a pretty good idea how to do it. But any advice would be sweet.

Same procedure as the ball joints pretty much. Going to need a 36mm socket for the hub nut.

YEa if you did the ball joints already you should be fine.
I have seen someone put a socket behind the hub and turn the wheel to loosen it up instead of beating it with a hammer. Can't remember where though

Easy enough to do. A swivel 12point 13mm makes it easer to take the unit bearing off. But since you have done the ball joints already you have got it covered.

Hour, hour and half job.
