When i have to pull the axle shaft out of my truck to work on the ball joints or replace the exploded outer axle shaft (like I'm currently waiting on the new shaft to fix it) that used to be a huge PITA for me, but a Ford tech buddy of mine showed me a simple 10 second way to pop it out. Take 2 large pry bars and place them on the lip of the inner axle shaft (where the dust seal is for the axle tube, there is a lip of metal on the axle shaft that the seal sits against) and push the pry bar handle towards the frame, this will make the axle shafts and that vacuum seal pop out like a dream with no damage. Hope this helps. First time I did ball joints it took a good 30-45mins of beating with a hammer and I destroyed the seal in the process. Now with this trick it takes longer to get the tools out of the box than it does to pop out the axle shaft and seal.
