I have it all apart but cannot get the axle to release out of the transfer case no matter how much pressure I am getting on it. Any suggestions how I can get it to pop out so I can put the new axle in?

    yes it is 4x4. There is a split ring clip on it when I look at the new one. Everything says it should pop out with not much pressure.

    I have tried the two heal bars and then rented a CV axle remover tool. Got it to budge about a 1/4" is all after much hammering. Trying to push the axle back in thinking that may readjust the split ring but can't get axle to budge at all. I am at a loss. Any other suggestions?
