I'd recommend just replacing the whole axle. If the boot is torn at all, you really can't say with any definitiveness when it torn, and how much dirt/grime got in there and contaminated the grease/bearing. You can pickup reman'd axles for like 55 bucks. I'd recommend www.cvaxles.com

As for what's involved. Jack up the car, remove the sway bar mount to the A-arm, loosen the bolt holding the front part of the a-arm to the chassis, remove the big nut holding the axle to the hub, punch out the spring pin on the axle, wiggle the axle out, re-assemble. Note, the axle has a chamfered end that the spring pin goes INTO. If you try to punch it in from the other side, you'll be sorry. Note, when you drive the spring pin out, drive it out from the NON-chamfered side.

there's a cylindrical pin that makes sure you don't get any side-to-side movement of the axle on the axle stub.

When you look at the axle, and you'll understand what I mean
