Nice write up Jeff, I'll save it for later use.

Are your coil overs installed upside down? All of the ones I've seen the threads are at the top.

Cv pop out?

Is it possible to pop the cv out of the snap lock on the inner cv? The black inner section of my cv had a lot of up and down movement since my Moab expedition. The wheel was off the ground a few times. I can feel and hear slight play in the cv at slow speeds.

Thanks for this great step by step process. I changed out my CV axle yesterday with no problems. Popped out of the diff just fine and snapped back in with one hammer blow. All good and no more ugly scraping noises from the front end.

Bent metal lip

If one were to damage that thin metal lip that meets up to the oil seal in the process of prying out the shaft, is there a place or part number to replace it? I managed to mangle mine, and now the seal won't stop leaking no matter what. The only way I've found to replace it is to get a whole new shaft.
