I found a thread with some good information
I like Sentinal02's tip for replacing the passenger side without removing the carrier. It will save a lot of trouble.
When removing the axle you will need to remove the caliper and hub and axle assembly--you should not have to seperate the axle from the hub assembly as it will come out in one piece.
You will need a 13 MM 12 point socket to remove the bolts for the hub (for some reason mine had a 14 MM??)
Check the other post out, it should help.
