I'm guessing you mean the right side drive axle.

The only 'special' tool I would say is a tie rod or ball joint puller.

https://www.amazon.ca/GearWrench-391...91363739&psc=1

The fork style tool works, but I like this one more. Search YouTube for "tie rod removal" or "ball joint removal"

You'll also need a "breaker bar" and the correct socket (it's 30-something mm big) to remove the nut on the hub, and preferably a torque wrench to tighten it to spec. Should use a new nut, and they sometimes come with the new driveaxle.

Watch this video. I'm not a fan of banging on the driveshaft to release it from the hub. Not good for the bearing. You can use an air hammer which creates better vibrations with less force. So that would mean two more tools (air hammer and compressor).

Axial joint connects steering wheel with tie rod ( track rod end). Thank you for that video.

As far as I can tell from Googling inner tie rod for our vehicles, it doesn't look like it needs a special tool like on some cars. It has a bolt that goes through it because the cast thing has an ear on it for the bolt. You may need the band flyer kind of like a CV joint band.

Nope. I’m so sorry. It is 2 hours job, but when I start to work it extends to 2 days. I had to replace protective rubber on shock absorber too. Btw it is not so complicated job,only corroded bolts could make a big problem.
