OK, I'm in the middle of replacing the right side axle shaft, and the bearing or splines are frozen in the hub. I have it soaking in PB Blaster right now, and hope that will free it up. Any tips on getting it to loosen up? I'm hesitant to heat the thing.

Got it!! Wedged a pry bar between the hub and frame and hit the axle with a brass drift and BFH. The tip about turning the wheels to extend the tie rod worked like a champ, and the only thing I had to remove was the lower ball joint and brake line clip to get the axle out.
