sounds like you are changing the axle u joints, not steering u joints. and no, there is no clips holding the axles in on the front. they just slide out.

Never messed with the u-joint style axles but I just replaced one of my front cv's so the prices should be almost the same. Only issue I ran into was getting the top hub bolt loose. I'd suggest you spray them down with pb blaster a couple days before you do it to help with that
