I just did this on my car. All four joints.

I would not recommend taking out the hub axle. Just remove the hex nuts. Use something to lube them up first, and really clean out the nuts before trying to loosen. Yeah you have to get under your car, but its so much easier imo

I removed one side's axle nut - it was not easy. And now I am worried I didn't tighten it enough. Ah, it's probably on there well enough. I used a breaker bar and gave it a good bounce about 2ft out to generate ~300lbs of torque. The other side I (or Pete!) just removed the hex nuts. Went way faster.

Make sure you lube those bearings well! I learned the expensive hard way!!!!
