My son and I got them all out.
While waiting for a reply we went out and took the whole front differential out with both shafts still in place. We then disassembled the whole thing to see how it was built.
We found that the shaft never actually enters the differential so I sprayed WD-40 all down around the shaft at the differential (basically filled the hole up) and let it sit awhile.
In the meantime I ran to my brother's and borrowed his ball joint fork. It barely fit but it was good enough. Tryed it on the one without WD-40 and it didn't want to budge.
Tryed the one with WD-40 and pop... right out it came!
Sprayed the other one and waited a couple seconds and it came right out too.
Until I learned, by taking it apart, that I would only be prying against the cup which held the shaft I was afraid of tearing something up by hitting it to hard. The WD-40 is what made it all happen though.
Thanks for the info everyone! I appreciate it. Now we both know how they are built too and I especially like the part that my 15 YR old son is learning something besides Xbox and texting and just tearing up the quads and cycles and then leaving them for me to fix! And he seems interested. Thanks again, Jeff
