There are bolts holding it on from behind, and the axle shaft needs to be pressed out of the hub with the tool, after that it should come right out...

I have reommved the three bolts and the half shaft. The hub/ bearing assembly still isn't budging. I have made a puller out of an old half shaft that seats up against the back of the bearing with no luck. I have also sprayed it liberally with PB blaster. Any other Ideas?

You wont like it, but remove the knuckle and have a machine shop press it out.

I finally got it I had to take my air chisel, small sledge hammer, pry bars and my made up puller but it finally came out. Thanks for your help!
