    I've replaced the boot a couple of different times with terrific success (kit from NAPA ~$20). Remember to put the bearings back in the same spot they came off of if its an inner boot tear.

    UPDATE: the transmission mount method works well. Unbolt the 4 bolts holding the mount to the tranny, remove the spring pin from the axle, shove trans away from axle using whatever method you can think of. I bet jacking it up a tiny bit is probably the easiest. Axle should drop right off of the trans splines.

    This will for sure not work for 05+.

    My huge challenge was that my axle was seized up in the hub itself. PITA, real PITA. Ended up having to get an air hammer and pound that mofo out.

    Mine was seized also and was not fun.

    Thanks for the help, guys.
    Sadly, I already paid to get it fixed. But I'm not too upset. It wound up being like $258 at the Midas near me. Part of me wishes I would have waited to try it myself, but from calling around, I got the impression that this was a pretty good price. Either way, I'm just happy it's fixed.

    If I had known it would've been this much pain I would've paid the 200 to have someone else do it. With the parts and the new tools I had to buy, it's not going to be much cheaper than that anyway.
