Steering feels loose

This weekend I'm going to try to address some loose steering with my 99 Sentra - replacing the left-side driveaxle and tie-rod ends. The steering feels loose, around an inch of play or so and at low speeds, there is rumbling/vibration when turning left.

At low speeds, I can feel a rumble when the car turns left. I've replaced the right-side transaxle before, which resolved this problem last time (the rumbling/vibration). Is it harder to remove the left driveaxle than the right? Any tips?

What else should I look at while I'm down there?

Actually, since it's shorter, I think it's easier to do the left side than the right. You'll need the same tools as you did for the other side. Personally, I like to replace the diff seal on the trans case when I replace an axle, but that's optional as long as you don't cut the seal during the R&R. I just don't like pulling the axle a second time due to a leaking seal.
