    It's been a while since I did it, but I think you can jack the weight of the vehicle or axle on it and then just pound like crazy with a BFH.

    Big F'n hammer huh! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Is it just stuck and needs to be banged off, I cant even get in a position to get a good hit without hitting something else /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.. Does it matter where I hit or do I have to hut upwards?? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Hit it up and down, left and right, and front and back until it finally pops. (There are cone washers around the studs that you're trying to pop free - if you can pry them out or get a screwdriver and spin them, then it should be easy after that)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you also loosen the nuts and drive around the block a few times to pop it free? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Being careful of course /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
