Hmm, I could do that since I have one spare hub assembly, however I wouldn't know which axle to put it on

Drivers, short side shaft is most common to break. Shorter shaft has less torsion twist, therefore tends to break more often.

I always put the wheel under the Jeep for that reason. It saved me from crashing terror once, when I was using my old tiny floor jack without jack stands. One little slip is all it takes. My Dad's cousin, who was a mechanic all of his life, lost his life when the vehicle slipped off the jack. He got a little too comfortable working under cars after doing it his entire life, and hadn't put the jack stands under it yet. You can never be too careful.

ALWAYS take advantage of your tire for safety. This is last year on the Rubi.

Great write up man, nice pictures as well. I wanted to know, I replaced my front right axle as well because the boot was ripped, if you buy a new wheel hub assembly does it come with a new wheel bearing or do I have to purchase it seperately? Also I see on rockauto.com that there's a spindle hub assembly. Do I need that since im gonna replace my wheel hub assembly?

On the D30 you get a wheel hub bearing assembly...it is all once piece and non-servicable.

Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly: BCA Part # 513159

I think the spindle thing is for the diff side bearings

Nice!

The only thing I could add is that when putting the brake calipers back on, hand tighten a couple of the wheel nuts on the wheel studs to hold the rotor where it should be. Makes it way easier to get brakes back on.

Any recamendations on the best brand or best price of CV joint assy to buy? I found out today that I have to do this now and I might as well replace both sides at the same time.

Eh, Napa I guess...they have "Gold" CV shafts which have lifetime warranties.
