Default Problems with Axles

So i know that the removal/fixing/adding of axles has been covered but im having a hard time finding anything specific to my problem.

I am trying to remove all 4 axles from my 02 wrx and am having a hell of a time. Now before you go pointing me to links just know that i have already searched and am not doing this on a stock car.

The motor is removed, the transmission, driveshaft, rear diff are all removed. i have also removed the axle nut on each wheel. Now i "thought" that was all that had to be done. if there is no transmission in than i should have no reason to have to remove the hubs just to get the axle out right?

If i need to remove the hub to remove the axles then so be it but i guess thats the info im looking for. OR should the axles now just slip right out? any assistance is appreciated!!

So, you have everything removed and the axles are dangling from the hub and the axles are not attached to the tranny or rear diff, correct? If so, and the axle nut has been removed, you can tap the shaft that goes through the hub with a hammer and it should slide out.

Yep they're his hanging there, and I just finished removing all 4 axle nuts. I'll try hammering them out. Just didn't want to damage anything if they were still being held in my some magical force

Ok so they came out by hammer. But my question is are they supposed to be that stuck in there? When I put new ones in will it be just as hard?

They should slide right in. Sounds like they've been in there for awhile and things got a bit tight. If you have trouble sliding the new ones in, you can put some multi-purpose grease on the splines of the shaft and that should help.
