Which side of the axle are you having a hard time with: the transmission end, or the end that goes into the wheel hub?

If you need to pound on the hub end harder than normal to get it out of the splines, you might want to consider servicing the wheel bearing and hub while you have it apart. Bearings really don't like being retained by the outer race while you pound the inner race with a hammer, it peens the balls into the races.
