I hope I didn't miss lead you. I just replaced the rear and I thought the front would be the same. sorry.
I had a brain fart, I was telling you how to do an inter cv joint ,you must be working on the outer. The outer has a compression clip on the end of the axle. You have to pop the cup away from the axle. Try a large deadblow hammer. try to hold the axle from popping out of the front diff. If the whole axle comes out of the diff you will just loose alittle fliud. change out the boot and dont forget to slide on the new clamps. take off the old spring clip on the end of the alxe and use the new one that came with the boot. aline the splines on the axle and the cv and tap it back on. If you want to take the cv apart and inspect or clean it you just twist the center star all the way to one side and a ball will come out the other side. keep rotating the star untill all the balls come out. Now the star and cage will come out together.
