Additional info, some guys have reported a LocTite like material on the axle splines. Makes pulling hub very difficult. If you were able to hammer your axle through the hub (toward the differential), you're OK. If the axle is not moving in the hub, apply heat to melt the LocTite. Then put some ass into the slide hammer. Be careful with those devils, many years ago, I got 30 stitches in my hand when the hammer snapped off the slide (big slide hammer).
