Hi there. On a 2004 Chevy Blazer, you can remove the CV axle shaft on the driver side by removing the wheel and tire, the brake calipers, brake pads, rotor, center hub nut, wheel bearings and loosen the ball joints from the upper control arm. Once you do this, you’ll need to remove four bolts under the front trans-axle in order to pry the CV axle from the vehicle. This job can be complex and difficult if you don’t have the right tools, so you might want to consider having one of our mechanics replace the ball joints for you.
