Help Needed - U Joint replacement

Guys
I have a 1993 2.5L XJ IN Sweden which has just failed it annual road safety check due to what I believe is a worn UJ on the passenger side front axle. I am located in California and my father-in-law is in Sweden and isnt so good at English.
I have never replaced a UJ before and my DD here is a ZJ with CVs so I have nothing to compare against.
What I need to know is how easy the process to replace the UJs actually is and what special tools do I need. I am going to Sweden later this week but I will need to bring parts and special tools with me as availability in Sweden can be very restricted.
Any tips, tricks or advice is gratefully received.

john

Assuming you know how to pull the axle shaft (remove wheel, caliper, rotor, hub) youll need some flat head screw drivers to remove the retaining clips on the u joints. A couple large sockets and a bench vice to push the old joint out and new joint in. Then reassemble. Its pretty straight forward.

Thanks for the confirmation. Hub removal etc is no problem - did the CV's on my ZJ last year. I plan to order part number 1-0174DG from Autozone -

Not enough time to have any other parts delivered. if anyone can check and confirm this is the correct part i would appricate it.
