I am installing a new passenger side drive axle this weekend; any pitfalls I should be aware of?

Yes, there is ... after you remove the ball joint bolts and disconnect it, the strut may extend and then you will have to compress it to get the ball joint connected back to it. I can only surmise that my struts need to be replaced. So I suggest that when you change your axle, to use one of the those strut/spring tools to keep the strut from extending.
