Place on work stands, remove wheel and remove split pin and axle shaft nut, this will be extremely tight. Drop off the tie rod end and undo the 2 lower strut bolts, you then can swing the stub away and slide out the axle from the hub end, then the axle will pull out of the trans axle, you will have to use a small pry bar as it is located with a C clip it should pop out fairly easly. Ensure you have a drain tray as you may loose some oil, fit new shaft, re fit all components in reverse order and use new split pins, check trans axle oil level.
