CV Joints

Relatively, in as much as me holding the axle and sombody else banging on it 
with a heavy hammer through a wood block is considered easy.  I mean, I 
couldn't have forced it on with hand pressure, and a vice was imminently 
helpful in securing the axle during the removal process.

Like I'd said, my biggest unknown/time sink was in figuring out a plan for 
those circlips.  Otherwise, would have been a pretty quick job; much easier 
than the radiator or hyd. pump.
