Default Question about replacing CV Axle Shaft on a 89 S10 Blazer

I just got an 89 S10 Blazer 4x4 and it needs a new front CV Axle Shaft put in it. The guy I bought it from gave me the part he bought but never put in. Does any one know of a pdf or manual with instructions on doing this?

Thanks

You can buy the chilton manual, probably has good instructions in that.
or you can just start pulling bolts...
make sure you have an axle nut socket, and a breaker bar.
pull axle nut
loosen wheel
raise and support vehicle
pull wheel
pull ball joints
move spindle
pry out axle shaft.
replace axle shaft...make sure it pops in all the way.
and re-torque axle nut to spec
check differential fluid when complete

that's all I remember right now. it's not too bad though.

The search function is your friend. I did a search for "half shaft how to" and this was the third result:

How to: CV Axle Replacement

It's a pretty good guide. Good luck
