I saw your thread about the work you're doing, although I think you've mistaken which one I mean. Mine's was to the output shaft to the rear axle, not the front driveshafts, but I think they may use the same bolt. If they've never been touched since leaving the factory I think your's will be a doddle.

My front ones are okay which is good, because I don't fancy trying to do them in situ on axle stands.
