Re: taking out front axles
Check out the attached pic. I separated the spindle from the knuckle using a chisel, and I think it's about the only way it would have come off. Just don't mess up the surface of the spindle or you'll have to order a new one. Once you get it to this point, you can just grab the axle and yank it out. It won't come out until you're at this stage.
This is the '78 axle we tore apart to swap the brakes, notice the lack of the 2 caliper mounting tabs, this one used the 6 bolt bracket.
