    If you look in the tech articles section of this site, there is a dana 60 manual that shows how to completely tear one down. I'm not sure if you axel is a D60 or not... but it might at least get you going in the right direction. This post is gonna shoot back up to the top of the forums, so hopefully somebody who knows more will see it.

    I don't think you have to remove the spindle on a locktight. You just need to pull the locating springs and pins, pull the cross shaft and you should be able to pull out the two center peices then slide the side peices off the axle splines.

    removing spindles is a hard job.
    a block a wood and a big hammer is required
    use the wood to protect the threads and beat the spindle until it starts to move
    when you get one side to move place something in the gap as a wedge and beat it the other direction
    repeat until it comes free
    upon reassembly coat the area with an antisieze compound and it will come apart easy next time
