LX470: front axle..CV..it be removed without removing the spindle

Resolved Question:

How do I remove the front axle from my LX470? I am going to replace the CV boots. Can it be removed without removing the spindle? I was hoping the 14mm nuts on the outside of the hub would allow me to remove the axle from the backside of the spindle. Is this right?

Click the link below and save the info. Some times you can disconnect the ball joint and swing the whole assemble out far enough to get the axle out of the hub it is a matter of personal preference.

are you suggesting that I may be able to remove the axle without remove the ABS sensor and just disconnecting the upper and lower ball joint?
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 5 years ago.

The abs sensor does not need to come out. They are normally frozen in any way. The detection ring on the axle will clear the sensor tip. Just be careful on the wire if you start to maneuver the hub assembly around so you do not stretch and break the wire.

When replacing the boots, should I clean out all the old grease and re-apply new and if so what should I clean it with? I realize this is another question. Do I need to go back to the web site and resubmit?
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 5 years ago.

If the boots are broken open the joint needs washed out with parts solvent or gasoline just use caution. Blow the joint dry. If the boot is not broken open you can just wipe the old grease out with a clean rag and use the new grease in the boot kit. Any way you do it this is a messy job.
