Exclamation CV Half Axle... Help!!!!

Hey all, I've been searching all over and I'm having a hell of a time figuring out what I need.
My front right cv boot is cracked and I'm just gonna pull and replace the half shaft. However, I can't figure out what I need exactly.

Specs. 2000, extr cab sr5, TRD o/r, 4x4, auto, 3.4 v6.



Any help would be great.

Its pretty straight forward, but if you can get a buddy for a couple mins. when its time to slide the new axle in you're almost guaranteed success not tearing that super soft inner seal on diff housing, it needs to go in real careful & real straight...

I've got the same truck as you pretty much , thats why I'll say this to ya bro' if you haven't serviced your trans. yet, don't wait too long, I'm pretty diligent about maint. but I didn't take too seriously the somewhat anal regimine that toyota specifies for trans flush & mine took a huge shit one day & its well into 4 figures to rebuild, just a heads up... good luck with the CV...

He never mentioned the bottle jack needed for the UCA, the jack underneath to compress the LCA, a vehicle lift, sway bar removal to access the goddamn CV axle, ect.

Replacing a CV axle sucked a bag of dicks.
