5.2L and 5.9L Engine

The CKP sensor is bolted to the top of the cylinder block near the rear of the right cylinder head. Disengage the sensor wiring connector and remove the two sensor mounting bolts.
Carefully pull the sensor out of the cylinder block.
Installation is the reverse of removal.

See the diagram below for location
