I changed out my front cv axle on an 88 Honda civic, it only took a couple of hours, I don't think you need to change them both unless there both bad. I think it's pretty important to change once it starts going out, you don't want it to completely fail while your driving, it would cause more damage to the car, and be extremely dangerous. Make sure you get the correct axle, the shop I went to gave me the wrong one twice in a row. As a disclaimer- I'm not a mechanic, this is just my own experience with honda cv axles. Good Luck
