the axle is held in place with a bolt you access in the center of the hub visible with wheel removed, and a c-clip found inside the differential housing after removing the will need to drop the exhaust,support the differential with a floor jack and unbolt the support(4 bolts/rubber donut) loosen sway bar bolts.a small locking plier helps you remove c-clips easily, rotate axel until tab on clip faces you.pray axel is not rusted tight in wheel housing and tolerences are very tight here so you will need to remove wheel side first and by twisting the axel at the joint to clear the housing then you will be able to remove it.difficulty factor-three beers&eleven muttered obsenities

Or after you remove the clip inside the differential you can just disconnect the shock behind the rear seat and it will give enough drop of the rear control arm to remove the axle.
