2005 Ram 4wd Front Axle

I need to replace the front right axle on a 2005 Ram 1500 4wd. Should I be separating the spindle at the top or bottom? I am concerned about the torsion bar suspension. Any tips would be appreciated.

The top. Why is it in need of replacement? Take the nut off and you may have to tap the knuckle with a hammer a few time. It will pop off quick, but don't be spooked.

The right outer cv boot is torn open. I work for a Ford dealer, this is one of our used cars, hate tearing into something without more then good intentions.
