I'm trying to remove the front passenger side axle for replacement

This requires that you remove the steering knuckle. To do this you must remove the ball joints, tie rod ball joint, spindle nut (this is on VERY tight), brake caliper, and of course the tire.
You will probably need an air gun to remove the spindle nut.

Diagrams shows some of the things you need to remove. The lower ball joints would have to be removed. It is not necessary to remove the complete knuckle as you can flip the knuckle outwards to separate it from the axle shaft.
