I just recently did mine, I don't know if there is an easier way but I had unbolt the front diff to make enough to slide the yoke of the spline at the gearbox end. If you find an easier way I would be interested to know.
I had to replace the whole shaft on mine because the previous owner never greased it and the yokes were trashed.
