I did. The kit (boot, two clamps, central bolt, grease) was ca.
$16/side. An easy one hour job. Greasy and stinky tho...

No need to diusazzemble anything. Undo the big a$$ bolt on the ground,
jack up the car, undo the six 12-point bolts at the tranny, turn the
steering to the side, pull the axel out while cursing and bitching,
secure in the vise, cut the outer clamp, replace the boot. Have a beer.

You will need a 27mm socket on a breaker bar with a cheater pipe, a
"triple square bit" and the Oettiker Clamp pliers (KD 424).

Don't roll the car with the cental bolt removed!!!
