I remember those getting the pliers for those clips. Its not horrible job if you want to save some money. axle prices have dropped a lot too when i did it 4 years ago the pass axle was 450 or 500 bucks from fcp. At least now i have the lifetime warranty on both.

Mine always rip on the outer join by the wheel hub. my 4 year old one is already ripping ;(

Once you take it apart you'll see they are pretty damn strong. Mine looked fine inside no signs of wear wasn't even any dirt in it.
