Just looking to save some people some time and try to help out I just replaced both cv axles by myself in a little over 2 hours. here are some pics to help someone out.
first take the wheel off and the hub cover i used a chisel and hammer
then remove the 35 mm axle nut I went and rented some sockets
then remove the two 19 mm ball joint bolts
then pull on the rotor brake assemble push the axle out of the way and work it out with a pry bar
I did this by myself so it is doable but would have gone quicker with a second set of hands. hope this helped out there is another informative thread on this as well
