To do it properly you have to pull the shaft out, not that hard a job, drivers side is the worst as you have to pull the cover off the front diff to free the shaft from the centre.
I unbolted the bottom ball joint and the swaybar link to give me enough room to swing the stub around.. not that hard a job. All depends on what your capabilities are. There are a couple of how-to's areound, and the workshop manual is fairly extensive.
It is in there, but not the clearest. I am not sure where I found the writeup, may have been on here or sau..
I had to pull both my driveshafts. 2x cv's stuffed and 3x boots.. Not happy. Found the evidence when I went to bolt the new brakes on. At least it was real cheap to have the shafts reconned, cost me around au$300 from memory.
