Rear axle removal question

Well I've been trying to get my passenger side rear axle out, I'm using my slide hammer I even tried heat but no go I pulled the bolts out of the pumkin to test and when you slam the slide hammer the pumkin moves so i'm thinking the splines may be twisted or about to strip in the third member and holding the axle in what do you all think and any ideas how to get it apart?

It may be time for a hibrid rearend with 4.62 gears.

Thanks,
Don

Did you remove the 4 bolts on the backing plate?

Re: Rear axle removal question

Hey Don this may be alittle unconventional but sitting here thinking of how to get it out I thought what about 2 small bottle jacks on each side of the axle backing platewith a couple 4x4 going to the spring pack on the oposite side just pump evenlly untill it pops I dont know just a thought if you try it and it works great, if not your out a little sweat from pumping to arms..

Re: Rear axle removal question

That sounds like a pretty good idea except it would probably bend the backing plate, My arms are pretty tired from slamming the slide hammer So I decided to quite for the night and have a cocktail [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Thanks for the ideas,
Don
