You need either a real heavy hammer or a slide hammer

You sure you have all the bolts out?

I've had to really swing at some and I don't live in a rust state.

A heavy slide hammer would help a lot if you can get your hands on one.

Remember, you can't just keep wailing on one side. You have to alternate sides so it comes out straight.

Been sacking it from all sides,don’t have a slide hammerlocks 4 bolts are out had a hell of a time just getting axel but off and had to heat that up and use some candle wax that I seen on YouTube seems like it’s frozen in the axel knuckle, don’t know, all I can see is threads for the axel bolt, don’t seen the spline at all

Wait a minute. I understood that you had the axle driven out already. If not, you need to do that first.

It won't come all the way out but you definitely have to free it up and push it back enough that it isn't holding you back.
