Default URGENT!-axle swap question

Swapping out the axle on cueball, and the axle is wedged between the transmission and the deal it spins in. (I can't remember what it'* called). I pulled the bearing and everything, but I really don't want to pull the shock deal. Anybody got a FSM?

You should be able to get it out without all the fancy tools. A ball joint separator is about all the extra you need. You should be able to get the axle out of the transmission by using a pry bar against a block of wood alongside the transmission case. Give it a good snap.
