To get the axle joints out it depends which ones you are replacing. Reguardless of side you need to pull the wheels, caliper, rotors and spindle. From there the driver side axle will slide out. If you only want to do the outer joint on the pass. side mark the shaft at the slip yoke for assembly reference and pull the shafts apart. To do the center one likely you will need to unbolt the diff from the beam. Take all the bolt out from the front side then there is a nut and bolt on the back driver side along the radius arm. Pull the diff free,take the clip off the axle at the side gear and pull free. I say likely pull the diff because if you have a ball joint press you can change the center one while the axle is on the truck. Its better to just pull everything and not a bad idea while you are there to pop in 2 new axle seals.
