    wedge a screw driver in between the tranny and the shaft and pop it out

    thanks fellas. but the thing is its on the intermediate shaft side(drivers side) and theres no good flat surface to pry against. it kinda of dishes all the way around like so: ) ( . do you think a big ass ball joint splitter would work?

    If you're trying to save your axles don't do this.

    seriously- if you try to pry the axle out with a ball joint separator wedged between the tranny housing and the cv joint, and its not working, something is wrong with your axles/tranny
