Maybe if you never have done it.  On a 5K, you will probably have to take
the axle off requiring one of those special 12 point bits.  I'd say 1.5 hours
tops on a 5K.  On my 90, it is an hour.
Go for a rebuilt joint if possible or get one from a junk yard better yet.
Just make sure the boot is in good condition.
