Caution: Do not attempt to move vehicle with drive axle(s) removed from wheel bearing. Wheel(s) could fall off, dropping vehicle to the ground and causing personal injury or damage to the vehicle.
Insert a drift or large screwdriver through the brake caliper into one of the brake rotor vanes in order to prevent the wheel drive shaft from turning.
Notice: Wheel drive shaft boots, seals and clamps should be protected from sharp objects any time service is performed on or near the wheel drive shaft(s). Damage to the boot(s), the seal(s) or the clamp(s) may cause lubricant to leak from the joint and lead to increased noise and possible failure of the wheel drive shaft.
Important: Cover the shock mounting bracket and the ball stud on the lower control arm with a shop towel in order to prevent possible wheel drive shaft boot damage during removal and installation.
Important: Clean and inspect the deflector ring on the wheel drive shaft and the wheel bearing seal area on the knuckle. Replace if necessary
Install in reverse order.
