Welcome to the sit silverRaven. Push them in as far as you can then with a quick jerk pop them out.Sometimes it takes a few goes at it.If you already have one side out then just put a long extension or something like that and tap it out.I think there is a puller but I have not seen one.You could make one though.

Do exactly what SandChris said, lol

I have heard on rare occasions that some axles never come out and you have to remove the diff and take it apart. true story

But push that axle in and jerk the fuck out of it. Straight out! it takes a few tries to just get it right and it will pop out. The clip will colapse on these newer cats and you should get new clips.

Maybe try the other side.And if the other side comes out then try to put something in and tap it out.Sometimes one side is easier than others.

i have never had a problem getting stock axles out , a couple of hard jerks by hand. i have used an axle puller (basically a slide hammer) you can usually get or rent one from a auto parts store or your cat dealer. if its a gorilla axle , i have heard that if you drain the differential and fill it with diesel fuel and let it sit over night it will really help.

He thinks he can drill the hub on one side and punch it through that side and pop the oposite hub out!!!! Wish me luck ...another day scratching my already bald head lololol
Post more Ideas if you can think of one!!!
