I just did this......

I was going to do it on the car,, and it was much easier to pull the whole unit.. Since you'll need to remove the retaning clip to get the shaft out, it's easier to do this with a press. Then of course you'll need to tap it back on over the spine,, All this is much easier when it's on a bench..

Lastly , getting the boot back on, make sure the boot and the lip of the joint ARE DRY!!!! otherwise they will slip right off ( on the car like mine did). I suggest using three vice grips to pull the boot on ( it's really a snug fit).. Also plastic tie wraps work better than the factory retaining ring ( I used two)..
Good luck!
