Are there any special tools or techniques I should know about
to replace front CV boots?  I finally split one after 186K miles.
Got kits from SJM already.

Is a press really/usually necessary to remove either joint?

What is "D3" used to seal the "Cap" to the inner CV joint
(per p. 40.18)?

Is any clamp crimper as good as another?

Anything else that should be done while they're out?
(Front-end bushings and shocks are original.)
