*front propshaft removal

I am trying pull my front prop shaft off and its stuck. I pulled the frontpin out, took a wire brush and cleaned off the splines, wd40'd them and packed it full of grease. It will only slide 1/4" till it stops. Anyone else had this problem? If so how can I fix it?

Just keep greasing it and working it back and forth. If that still doesn't work you could unbolt the front diff and then just pull it off.

I have to pull the front differential anyway. That's why I'm taking the shaft out. Is there enough room for it to pull off?
