It's called EZ Boot or Speedie-Boot. With these all you have to do is cut the old boot and clamps off, clean off any contaminated grease, fit the new boot, refill with grease, tighten the clamps and bolts, and you're done. BUT, if the old boot has been leaking for awhile, you need to clean the joint and check it for pits or grooves. If the joint is in good condition, just replace the boot. If not, replace the axle shaft.
Remove the wheel. Remove the axle nut. Remove the caliper and lower ball joint. Use the correct tool to separate the axle and spindle.
