Changing front outer CV Joint

I think my right front CV Joint is shot an my 2008 outlander 650. I noticed it making a creaking sound when I sit on it and tried lubricating everything and this did nothing It has gotten really bad when I sit on it and when I am riding . Is there a way to confirm this is the CV Joint? if so, Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to change the front outer CV Joint? I am fairly mechanical and have decent tools, but no press or specialty tools. I have never changed a CV joint and want to make sure I am not getting in over my head.

thanks for any advice.
