Thx, I've never had one stuck like this. I had to sledge the drivers side out. I hope yours comes out nice and easy. Where in central OK? I'll probably be out it OKC a couple weeks this year. Might take the bike again.I am about to replace my passenger side shaft and I am hoping that I have no issues. As long as mine comes apart without the issues you are having it should be no problem to change.
I can't offer any tips/tricks but I will say I wish you the best.
