What year, make, and model? Some are fairly easy, some are quite a pain in the posterior, lol.

chane half shaft

I have found out that it a whole lot more simple to change the half shaft with includes the cv joint.I am not sure how easy it is to change the half shaft on your car but the cv joint is a real pain.
My answer would be go to the local parts store and buy a new or rebuilt axle shaft they are about 60 to 80 dollars with a core deposit.buy some gear oil cause you will loose some of it when you pop out your axle shaft.

I agree with all posted here, but as mentioned the year, make and model helps!
