its not too involved but there are many other thing you can do while in there when i do axle joints ( about every 3 to 4months) i clean and repack hubs and wheel bearings check balljoints stub shaft bearings brakes and all other components i can see at the time
Do the 10 bolts use the 297X U joints? If they do, take a peak at the super dooper strength 297X U joints Jesse at High Angle Driveline is in the process of weeding the bugs out of. Super strength. Throw in some of those Warn Hub Fuses and you'd be set for big tires.

remove your hubs, remove your spindle nut and bearing then rotor. remove the 6 nuts holding the backing plate on. take a chisel or some similar item and try to work your spindle loose from the knuckle without damaging the surface where your rotor seal rides. After that the shaft will slide right out. the u-joints replace just like on a driveshaft. Check inside the back of the spindle, theres a small bearing in there that may be bad, if not be sure to put a little grease on it. If its bad they sell a little kit to replace it and a rubber seal on the stub shaft. It not real hard after you do it once.
