How to replace axle shaft?

Anybody have a link on how to replace a new edge axle shaft?
I looked around and only found a link on how to replace it on an 2007 gt

Thanks and reps to whoever can help me.

ummm take the wheels off...take the brakes off the rear...take the diff cover off..drain all that shit out. make sure its in neutral...theres a rod goin the the center of everything..make sure its facing the top...take out the little i think 7mm bolt..take the rod out..dont drop the spider gears out...push the axle in from the wheel studs untill it stops..pull the C clip out and pull it out..try not to drag it on the seal if your not replacing the seal...then reverse install...dont forget to put fluid back in it hahha and dont leave any shop rags in the rear end hahah

Its on the front of the diff, facing the front of the car.
Fill until it starts to come out.
