Question changing the clutch

I was wondering if anyone can tell me whats the procedure for removing the axles from trany. Do I have to take half the front suspension off or is there a trick. Can I just loosen the steering arm and will then the axle pull away. If anyone can give me some pointers it would be great

Or if someone has done this and can come by and help out one evening - even better.

You don't even really NEED to take off the suspension fork, but be prepared to rest the axle on the lower control arm and hold it up with some rope or wire.....thats what i did when i removed my tranny, well on the drivers side at least. I just removed the half shaft with the axle still attached (but removed from the hub), from the tranny, moved it out of the way, but still restin it on the LCA and held it up with some rope (to not destroy the cv joint).
And i find it easier to remove the axel nut while the wheels are still on and the car is on the ground....just pop the center cap out of the wheel, or if you have steelies then the 32mm nut will be acessable.
I'd come by and help but i'm in hamilton.

yeah i wanan get a KVR python front setup with black rotors and some black rear rotors with SiR rear disc setup.

thanks man, its a work in progress, things keep getting messed up.
Im riding on progress suspension full coilovers, its pretty low but i want the rear lower and the front not so sure, for looks id lower it but driveability the height its at now is perfect i think. I had to go do some things sat. so i couldnt stick around. As for the engine, stock B18b1 for now.....until i save for turbo.

i broke 2 brand new breaker bars trying to get the axle nuts off. I put a long bar on the end of the breaker bar and it broke. So i just rented an electric impact gun ($11.50) and went to town.

you don't really need to take them off. I had a hard time taking one of the nuts off so I left the axle in, and popped it out of the tranny and just swung the whole front hub outwards and propped it out and dropped the tranny under, worked fine, it didn't get in the way.
