Front axle removal tips?

So I broke a front axle on my 08 std about a month ago ( I left for work right after it happened) and I will be attempting to replace it when I get in. My question is: are there any tips to remove it? The only thing left of the axle is the inside cv (cup and spline?) that goes into the front diff. I had this happen on an 08 sportsman and never did get the cv out of the diff. I tried prying it out, pb blaster, everything I could think of and could never get it out. Has anyone else had this problem and could possibly throw me some tips or suggest a special tool I'm unaware of? Thanks ahead of time!

Disconnect the shocks and the A arms. Grab hold of the axle and jerk pull it from the diff.

Do you have a slide hammer? That's what I ended up using to get mine out. I think I saw a company that actually made an adapter for removing cv's with at slide hammer. I just used the "L" attachment and worked my way around the cv trying not to pull too hard in any one direction.

I have also found that Kroil seems to loosen seized parts better than PB. Smells better too.

When I installed the new axles, I used anti seize on the splines to hopefully make removing them the next time a bit easier.

The axle is not complete, I jerked on it so much to where the only thing left is the inner cv inside of the front diff

Ha looks like I posted that right after you did I was replying to the other post, I'm looking online now for a slide hammer. That seems to be the best route

Re: Front axle removal tips?

That's what I've been trying to think of for hours, a slide hammer but I couldn't remember what it was called. That would be your best bet, pretty much perfect for what you're doing

I used a large 3' screw driver. Slid it between the cv cup and diff and popped right out.
