D-30 axle shaft removal

How do you get the axle shafts out when you are just working on the axle (just axles and frame)? I have everything off (caliper and 3 wheel bearing bolts) and they won't budge. Did I miss something somewhere?

The hub bearingis normally in there very tight. I put PB Blaster around the edge of the hub, then i take and put one of the bolts back in and put a socket on it and smack it a few times.

You can do like Jeepsr4me said and thread one of the bolts back in most of the way, put a deepwell socket on the bolt head (one that you don't mind getting dented up) and use your power steering to pop it loose.

Edit: or you can use the axle shaft ears as shown here http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/unit...tbearing-1.htm

Socket with an extension on it did it. Took some banging to get them to move but they are out now. I can see where this would be so much easier on the jeep. Would it hurt any to sand off the rust inside the knuckle and on the hub before putting them back together? Thanks for the quick responses guys.

Will not hurt a thing to sand off that rust. I put a coating of anti-seize around it when installing.
