Sorry I missed your question. It's been about a year since I replaced both axles, so the memory isn't crystal clear but I do remember removing the center console and having to lift up the carper under the rear seat to gain access to the cables and the rubber grommets in the body that seal off water from getting into the floor.
I did the entire axle swapping job by myself, I recall it was a bit of a PIA to fish the cables through the floor and under the carpet, but it's nothing that can't be accomplished with a bit of patience. If your rear calipers work you could probably just remove them from the old axle and slide everything out of the way and re-install them on to the 'new' axle, this would save the labor of dealing with the cables and hydraulic lines.
